When I think about it now, I never knew what I felt growing up. And what I felt was that it was no generational wealth established. I didn’t understand that and that’s what we all feel. Black people in America, people from the struggle, immigrants, it’s no generational wealth that we are attached to so we are tasked to create — in one generation — closing the gap.
