Photo by Liza Summer (Pexels) It was a frigid winter day. The sky was overcast, hiding the sun. The chill filled the air. I walked to our meeting room. I was enthralled. I had gotten a new job, which included a drastic pay increase. I inhaled the freshness of opportunity with every breath and smiled. As I made my way to a seat and prepared for the presentation, I glanced over at the only other Black woman. She frowned. “Why doesn’t the Black woman smile?” I thought to myself.
