It’s the last day of Black History month, because it’s a leap year. I’m so grateful for that one extra day! Hooray for 29 days of celebrating Black History! I hope everyone that read through the entries got a taste of what it was like for Black people living in America during the 1800s. I absolutely love history, so this prompt was definitely my favorite so far.

If you haven’t already, you can check out the entries here:

So, who won? Well, I’m not going to reveal it yet. You’ll have to wait until you read to the end. For anyone who reads my work regularly, you know RP loves a good suspense.

    This is such an honor, RP. Cotton became a very important story to me. It grew on me, it angered me. It was liberating. And it wouldn't have come to life If it wasn't for this challenged. I appreciate that it was recognized among so many great stories! Thank you and thank everyone who participated. We are all winners just by challenging ourselves to write about the hardships of slavery. 💖💖💖
