Has anyone thought about reclaiming your name? That is, reclaiming the African name you were severed from during the most recent chapters of the African Maafa in the Americas. I have been wrestling with this issue for some years now, thinking whether or not I should change my name to one with real meaning amongst a particular African tribe that I may identify with. It is how Malcolm X expressed how odd it would look to people if a Chinese man had the last name "Murphy" given it is Irish. Likewise, it must be just as supplanting for the African in America to carry the names of our former enslavers. For the most part, if your surname is Johnson, Williams, Brown, Hall, Booth, and so forth, then if you follow your family tree back to the plantation you will find that your ancestor was either bought by someone with that surname or it was the name of the plantation master (thus branding your ancestor with it like cattle). Considering this, has anyone considered reclaiming an African name for yourself and your successive generations?
