Despite numerous hurdles and obstacles, Black culture is at the epicenter of what’s now and what will be next. The influence of Black creatives is undeniable as our talents span across mediums, platforms, and continents. While we share the universal kinship that is Blackness, our voices, thoughts, and ideas are all different because each individual has had his or her own experiences that ultimately shaped who they are. It’s through this diversity that we continue to thrive and explore what it means to be Black and unlimited.  

This year, as part of Black History Month, we celebrate the full range of the Black experience with 28 Things About Me, a four-part editorial series where members of our own community share their personal stories around Blackness. Here, Complex Line Producer Nasir Kenneth Ferebee opens up about his journey to living his best life everyday.
