    Wow, what a powerful biography of our history. I was moved and saddened that after all of THAT (only touching the surface), we still find it difficult to embrace each other in UNITY....this is OUR story, we MUST keep it alive and stop knocking each other down, so future generations can appreciate where they are and know where they're going. As well as appreciate the beauty and strength of our people and LOVE SELF.

    Thank you Bro. Clyde and the timing of this post was PERFECT.

    .......Yes Proverbs31Woman, there is some emotional ambivalence to be felt, for sure; however, you arrived at the correct point, in my opinion, we must keep and embrace ourstory and unify...Peace In my sister friend.


    Thanks for all that you do here to foster that unity...I see you!

    It's probably because those who choose not to unify also choose to ignore what has happened and what is happening now. What they need is for someone to show it to them.

    Yes! And what I really liked about it was that this blog shared some of the recent atrocities committed against us Black Americans. I feel that, if it happened to one of us, it has happened to all of us, and we should do whatever we can to keep this history alive until we achieve total peace.

    Thanks.
