there is probaly one but that was just my tribute
Interesting, as I had never heard of Ora before this either. thanks for sharing Myiesha. my initial comment was speaking to how so much that is black in this society is deemed of a lower nature and/or even evil (subconsciously and/or overtly). so much negativity associated with the color black right?... even in the field of electricity for that matter such "somehow" is the case...yeah the color black is assigned to the negative current (red pozitiv).
anyway, let us continue to work toward make'n this a world one where there is no more perceived need for a so-called black history month. history still is so much HIS-story...and that aint right. we need the true story to be told now..the full story (no longer the FOOL-story).
Great post Myiesha. Really interesting and informative. Even I had never heard of Ora before this. All we hear in US Open is Billie Jean King or Arthur Ashe. But Ora was quite the achiever!
But right now, leave alone black tennis players, US tennis as a whole is still trying to find itself.
And Corey - i completely agree with you as well. But thankfully the times are changing for the better - it might take a while, but eventually we will get there.
