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 8th, we have a quote from director Spike Lee.
“I believe in destiny. But I also believe that you can’t just sit back and let destiny happen. A lot of times, an opportunity might fall into your lap, but you have to be ready for that opportunity. You can’t sit there waiting on it. A lot of times you are going to have to get out there and make it happen.”
