Brittany Janay reminds us of our inherent brilliance. She affirms that not only are we our ancestors’ wildest dream, we are a manifestation of their gifts, their resourcefulness, their brilliance. Brittany Janay shares a few historical and present day anecdotes as example of how Black people have and continue to share their brilliance in community and with the world–from vaccinations to bonnets. In the context of systems literally set up for our demise the fact of the matter is this: our existence, our survival is brilliant, our innovation, no matter how big or small, is brilliant. Brilliance is within us.
