While there has been a lot of controversy and uproar about Zoe Saldana portraying her in the biopic movie, at least one good thing that has already come from it and that people are speaking her name again and some are learning about her for the first time. Today, we celebrate her courage, talent, and her unapologetic love for Black people and our struggle.
