Guess what? It’s BLACK HISTORY MONTH!!!!!!!! AAAYYYEEEEEEE!
Every year I’m stuck trying to find all of the dope Black History Month events going on here in Seattle. And when I do find them it’s too late for me to plan my attendance. However I'm not having these issues this year!
With that being said, this year I’m looking ahead and sharing all the events I plan on checking out. Don’t get me wrong, I won’t be able to hit all of these events since my ankle is still broken (check out Back 2 Besa Ep 2 to find out what happened lol) BUT I plan on hitting as many as I can!
