You already know my love for Philadelphia is conditional. One such condition is definitely the way we celebrate the fourth of July. Never mind that my love for this country is conditional too. I’m just saying. It’s kinda hard to have deep love for this place as a woman of color, but again, the way we celebrate this nation’s independence day, or as my west coast nephew calls it “America’s birthday”, is something that even as a kid I just loved. There is a lot of vibrancy and festivities especially here in Philadelphia that I don’t think you or I should LIVE without. Did I mention a lot of them are free? And there is food? I mean like free food too? #free #food Sport your red, white, and blue, and get out there and join in the fun, the food, and the freedom!
