    For Black History Month, theGrio decided to track down the descendants of well-known African-American historical figures to find out what it is like being descended from some of most the influential people in American history. Here is what Pauline Copes Johnson and Deirdre Stanford, the great-grandniece and great-great grandniece of Harriet Tubman, had to say about the joys and burdens of bearing a famous ancestor’s legacy.Pauline Copes-Johnson,85, is the great-grandniece, and her daughter Deirdre Stanford, 64, is the great-great grandniece of Harriet Tubman. Copes-Johnson has been giving presentations about Harriet Tubman’s life for over ten years. Tubman is recognized as one of the ”conductors” of the Underground Railroad, freeing more than 70 slaves

    It's possibly not taught by reason of great envy?

    When I used to frequent a Q&A site, I would find all things to do with black people and place them in their category accordingly. I looked for all "Black History Month" questions and near every last question was in the manner of this: "Why is there a black history month and no white history month?", "Why do blacks get a history month, where's the white and mexican, and asian month?", "I'm sick of black history month, why can't whites have one?", "why isn't it racist to have a black history month, but racist to have a white one?". It never ended.

    I merged all that I could and gave the proper answer, "There is a white history month, it's called every month of the year, including black history month." I hope they got the point.

    When WE don't educate/rationally program ANY/ALL of our people to consciously acknowledge our African ethnicity [as opposed to alleged Blackness/how BLACK is Halle or Barack] as a blessing as opposed to a curse; aren't we extremely unlikely to even begin to fulfil our main responsibility; to deduce and construct the socio-economic vehicles that will initially adequately secure our communities and countries, creating the possibility of us eventually collectively advancing and competing with the rest of Humanity in the 21st century?

    SHOULDN'T ALL OF OUR SCHOOLS in general, especially the traditionally Black Schools in the UK, USA the rest of the Diaspora and Africa in particular be teaching our own truthfully updated History Curriculum highlighting our so diverse but efficiently marginalized or totally ignored contributions to Civilization in every area of human activity over the last 5000 years; thus reprogramming the minds of the people of African ethnicity with our TRUE history [as unearthed by our own historians] as a truly superlative therapy for the residual trauma of the ongoing African HOLOCAUST, for which both an apology and reparations are STILL missing TODAY, aren't THEY?

    Would YOU assist with regard to projecting and promoting an African centred History curriculum based on the books/works listed below, which would within 20 years reprogram with rationally focused intelligence a whole generation of our youth?

    The Destruction of African Civilisation (Chancellor Williams), and Blacks in Science (Ancient & Modern), They Came before Columbus The African Presence in Ancient America (Ivan van Sertima), Nile Vallely Contributions to Civilisation and the Browder Files I & II (Anthony T Browder) are all interesting and uplifting books that will fully update your knowledge of African history, along with being the ready-made textbooks of our updated African History Curriculum.

    Our spiritual/intellectual heavyweights can attempt Dr Frances Cress Welsing’s book The Isis Papers-The Key to the Colours, which is an in depth analysis of Racism and White Supremacy and all the relevant Symbols that pervades every aspect of our lives. She literally puts forward a program at the end of the book as to how to limit the damage done to us collectively as we attempt to survive in this blatantly hostile White Supremacist Racist environment.

    Yurugu [An African Centred Critique of European Cultural Thought and Behaviour] by Marimba Ani is the ultimate rigorous Spiritual and Intellectual workout, which literally leaves no stone unturned in it microscopic examination/dissection of white Europeans/Caucasians and their psyche’s ongoing malevolence [towards the rest of the human famiy], due to the fundamentally warped Platonic concept of “Objectivity” blended with Plato’s higher mind/limbic brain spiritually/intellectually alienated drivel through which THEY consciously discern themselves to be the head/brains of Humanity relegating the rest of the human family into “OBJECTS” to be controlled/culled as they see fit, as opposed to being entitled to the same rights and privileges to enjoy their lives and prosper, as Europeans.

    Yurugu-as defined by the Dogon of Mali = a being born prematurely without his female twin-soul. Realizing that he was flawed and therefore deficient, forever incomplete, who was and is doomed to perpetually search for completeness that could never be his.

    How do the Dogon know so much about just how fundamentally twisted/unwell the LUCIFERIAN LUNATICS/POWER ELITE/status quo who are currently so determined to turn this planet into a very real hell in the 21st century, are?

    Marimba Ani’s Yurugu would serve as a ready-made textbook for Advanced Level African Studies right up to Doctorate level, as this extremely challenging read is that comprehensive and relevant with regard to rationally evaluating/knowing exactly how our enemies are going to behave as standard in this very hostile, extremely challenging environment.

    Would you ALL agree that there is a mountain of useful information that we peoples of African ethnicity in general, our would be leaders and leaders specifically need to ingest and digest if we’re going to even begin to deduce how to constructively develop ourselves and our communities in order to kick start the African Renaissance in the 21st century?

    Even more bizarre is our ongoing acceptance as people of African ethnicity of the current status quo or are you all truly unaware of the fact that ALL over the World including Africa, Europeans still LEGALLY own allegedly; all the land and resources they acquired during the looting, pillaging, RAPE of this planet in general, of OUR continent in particular that Colonialism and Apartheid sanctioned as the norm [in fact aren’t THEY making the same play again with their WAR ON TERROR] as opposed to the longest list of unacknowledged unpunished Human Rights violations/CRIMES in human history?

    Isn’t ANYONE who genuinely believes they are not programmed
    graphically illustrating that their programming is COMPLETE?

    We have no more history or herstory to come up with as we have nothing to be pride of to be teaching. Nobody is stepping up and stuck in fear to do the right mind stomping in the trenches to be a road model. They too busy following everybody news and time so no more Book of Times and Book of Changes are made so therefore we as a people reap what and how we sow. Word up. It's too deep to be even looked at seriously...we take more pride in nonsense than pushing a new math and science book out. We got more Book of Times in the Porn industry, that is by the way on the rise in mindsets like no other is directly connected to the manmade information technology which provides quickest access to any genre of the entertainment industry in a major way through songs and movies plus we got more Book of Luxuries for that area too of all genres. We got more Book of Fantasies that we as a people read over what is needed so therefore when the kids come out to be learning they learn somebody's else fantasies to include their mother's original one too!! We got the great Book of Addiction too though the stats from the government are wrong cause when was the last time you seen one-time and any government official asking every drug fiend their name, age and location plus what you addicted on? Drug is perceptive not to be contained to a synthesize pill or plant but also the mind since the beginning of times called slavery. They use "Writer's Trajectory" (from my book called Diary of a Black Man: Tri Ba Model and Geometry) and ourselves keep it up also...who the real killer of our own selves? We are. We got no more Book of Times and it ain't hard to tell so who got the real juice? The pen and pad. Word down.
