From being told to make sure we’re in the house before the street lights came on, to the no-nonsense parental two-liner “TRY ME,” when it came to growing up in a Black family, the laughs and playful schemes were plentiful.
But come time to get to business, “games” were not an option.
Connecting experiences across the world, Twitter users are traveling down memory lane while sharing their #GrowingUpBlack stories.
A glimpse from the twitterverse:
