    i wld like this 2 b a place where members feel free 2 post their favorite afrocentric thoughts, quotes, sayings, fables, and hopes. there's no limit on length, and commentary/feedback is welcome. agree or disagree, feel free 2 post y it's tru, or y it ain't. i'll try 2 put 1 up each time i'm here (which is pretty often).

    the mark of a wise man is 2 do more & say less about it.

    "...because we sent students to school without giving them a nation-mission, when they came out of school they didn't understand the nature of their commitment to us."

    "THE NEGRO DIGS UP HIS PAST"​

    Afro-Puerto Rican, Arturo A. Shomburg [1874-1938]​

    "The American Negro must remake his past in order to make his future....History must restore what slavery took away....The Negro has been a man without a history because he has been considered a man without a worthy culture....But already the Negro sees himself against a reclaimed background, in a perspective that will give pride and self-respect, ample scope, and make history yield for him the same values that the treasured past of any people affords."
