|“||I'm sorry. You know I, um, I gave you the wrong advice when I said we couldn't have our moments -- that we had to be strong. That black superwoman complex, we don't have to be that. We can just be real. We can break down. We can ask for help. We can be there for our sisters and our brothers the way you were there for me.||”|
— Sandra to Malika
