Hotep Siblings, On my website, I write articles for African people. This one relates to leadership in the African community. It's entitled "The Allegory of the Classroom." “Firstly, I find it apt to tell you a tale that I have heard from a child. He spoke to me wiser words than one would otherwise expect from the runt. In his little, dusty pants, the youth told me how his classroom teacher was a racist. He reported how this teacher proposed that Africans had no history. He said in this classroom, of the thirty students, ten looked about after this comment, clearly knowing better and very perturbed. The child reported on how eyes jumped to and from other eyes, to a point where each of the ten touched each of the other ten, or the sides and backs of the heads of the other 20. He went into more detail, claiming that every ‘conscious’ kid looked at every other ‘conscious’ kid and registered the ‘unconscious’ kids. So in this classroom, every concerned child looked on every other child. Finally, each eye showing a slight shyness, a lack of concern, or maybe a need for a spark, stopped and class continued; the teacher unchallenged. The story perplexed the child, but greatly informed me. You see, it takes one thing to be ‘concerned,’ blame it on history, but whence concerned, one looks for leadership not amongst soi-disant leaders but amongst soi-disant followers. So to speak, leaders do not lead, followers do. Therefore, truly followers–meaning everyone–is a leader.” For interested parties, the website is AfricanBloodSiblings.Wordpress.com Hotep!
