    History is a clock...

    "History is a clock that People use to tell their political and cultural time of day.
    It is also a compass that people use to find themselves on a map of Human Geography.
    The role of History is to tell a People what they have been, where they have been, what they are and where they are.
    The most important role that history plays is that it has the function, where they still must go and what they still must be.”

    -- Dr. John Henrik Clarke

    Good afternoon, elder bruh...

    And nice photo spread...

    But, we can only bring up the distant past so much, i. e., whereas one can't also be so sure that the sixties and posts sixties generations associate achievements or failures with our more recent actions/deeds /etc.

    Simply put?

    I feel and think it's long overdue for us to have community wide discussions/debates/etc about the impact of the movements of the fifties/sixties/seventies:

    Then some of us can and will be able and winning to decide where we go from there...

    That is:

    While some feel and think the struggle was 'won'...

    Others also feel and think the struggle was 'lost'...

    Instead:

    Movement just run their courses...

    And the struggle to win for us true equality etc. for ourselves with whites and everybody else is this nation isn't over!

    May the new struggles for our dignity and self respect etc. go on...
