DAKOTA ROSE TIGNER . . . A SIXTH GENERATION
On December 29, 2020, Little Dakota Rose “made her entrance” to the earth. She became the sixth generation of strong, African American females in the “Ferguson-Smith-Dotson-Tigner generation. Her matriarchal line includes: Lula Bell Dotson, Mavis Oneita Ferguson, Dr. Mamie Smith, Meta Rose Fluker-Yett and Rahjinah Carla Tigner. As early as two days old, she made her footprint in the sand. . .”I will be heard!” Sometimes with a scream and other times with a strong, hard kick! Mamie, who will lovingly be called “Gigi,” said, “You go girl! You stand on the shoulders of a string of women who will not be silenced!“
A LITTLE BROTHERLY LOVE
Big brother Deraj adores her, but he will make it clear to her, “You may be the latest, but you “sho’nuff” are not the greatest! We work hand-in-hand!” Of course, what are big brothers for?
Like her great-grandfather David, Dakota “hummed” on that remark! She knows that for now, she is so special. Her smile is engaging. Her movements watched and her love overwhelming! Childlike innocence is more of what the world needs today. It has become one of “dog-eat-dog-like mentality .
Gigi proudly shows her great-grand off!
This little kid has already stolen her heart! She can’t wait to hold her in her arms. We gotta’ get COVID out of the way!
Here we go . . .!
