One of my new year’s resolutions was to learn more about our black experience. I’ve challenged myself to take one day, of each week to research facts from our black history.
I’m determined to examine the plights, accomplishments and lingering inquisitions of our ancestry. I often find myself wondering if my 10th-great grandmother had dreams and hopes for me while she lived as a slave? How did her life affect my life directly?
There is profound instruction intertwined in our history books and as I constantly search for substance in life, I’m indifferent about seeking advice from a singer who used to sell drugs, or idolizing some “reality-star” who promotes promiscuity on television for ratings.
