of our company to prove otherwise. Anybody with even a passing familiarity with be knows that the very reason for our existence is to celebrate the best and brightest in black America in an environment that remains intensely hostile to our ambitions. We believe in the excellence and unlimited potential of black people, and we are fully invested in that reality. We stand for the principles, values, beliefs, and dreams-championed by Frederick Douglass, Marcus Garvey, Rosa Parks, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., Shirley Chisholm, Jackie Robinson, and countless others-that are the true legacy of black culture. We have come too far as a people to turn our backs on, to squander, this inheritance. We can no longer allow-and can scarcely afford-the continued defamation of our culture and community. We are better than that, and we deserve better than that. Enough is enough.
