I Dedicate: “Four Women”

Today’s edition of I Dedicate features a performance from last night’s Black Girls Rock show that I wrote about in my previous post.

The song is a cover of Nina Simone’s “Four Women” and boy, oh boy, did these ladies do it justice!!!!

There’s no real significance as it relates to my baby, the song is entirely too deep! It’s really a just because type of thing.Well, I guess, now that I think about it…I hope she grows up with an awareness of what it means to be a Black woman in this country. That she finds strength from the pain endured by those that have come before her and broke down doors that she’ll be able to fly through.
