“I stand before you as the proud leader of an organization that has lent its voice to positively uplifting the narrative of Black people. There is no greater time than the present to become a storyteller and shape the narrative of this experience. Through R.H. Boyd, we have a multitude of resources that showcase the beauty and diversity of the Black voice. Since its founding by my great-great-grandfather in 1896, we have been an active supporter and participant in the liberation of our people for five generations, and now is not the time to rest on our laurels.”
