While we provide you with quotes on the black celebrities, politicians, artists and entertainers with birthdays this month, as well as the black facts of the day which inform you on what went on in this day in history, we also have another treat for you.
We will publish a landmark quote from an African American legend every day of Black History Month.
Today, February 3rd, we have a quote from business magnate Russell Simmons.
“I don’t allow myself to feel uncomfortable about being the only black in the room. That type of environment raises the bar for me. I don’t want to be a big fish in a small pond.”
