Conerly reflected on her family upbringing as well as African American leaders from past and present who have inspired her, as she celebrates National African American History Month. “Because of my race, and I also know the history of my race and what we had to go through, I do take pride in being Black/ African American,” Conerly said. “I take pride in all the changes that the ones before me fought for…I take pride in us being us…I take pride in everything I do that comes with being Black/ African American. And that’s just because of the ones before me — the amount of work and the challenge that they endured for me to be able to live African American/ Black.” (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl.
