Black History Celebration
Rutgers University has lecture halls that are usually filled to the brim with hundreds of students; the students are largely diverse and come from multiple backgrounds. I occasionally glance around to see if they’re any other black males in the class…only ten to fifteen MAX. I then feel grateful that I’m in such a great situation. My family is middle-class, my parents combined make over $175,000 a year, and they can both put my brother and me through college: loan free. I reminisce on all the hard work, SAT prep classes, studying, clubs, & college visits I had to do to prepare myself for the place I’m in.
