Writing Prompt: Blackness, and A Seat at the Table

I get what you’re saying. I read somewhere that writing about yourself without any kind of analysis or understanding is embarrasing to the reader as well as the writer. As someone who wants to write (or feels compelled to write) their own life history, I seem to be questioning my ‘prompts’ then end up not writing as it becomes confusing for me. Thanks for your prompt as it gives me permission that there is no need for me to ‘hide’ aspects of my life, in my writing.
