    We hold, these Truths to be self Evident, that for the majority of us here when we look in the mirror we see an African, and after sme research we hold these truths to be self evident.

    1 We had a traditional culture where marriage was an institution not a choice

    2 Where educational excellence was something our youth competed for

    3 Where even though we had free markets we had a socialistic system of economic reciprocity

    4 it took a village to raise a child

    5 We honored our elderly and no elder went without

    6 That we left the plantations with nothing but the rags on our backs,
    without crying whining or pity parties, but with the African spirit of creativity and endless hope for our descendants

    6 And that now we have an imperative to work plan and organize strategies collectively to provide a descent futre for our progeny in a calapsing global economy

    7 And that as Malcolm had stated we have also an imperative to invest and skills exchange with nations in the Motherland to help stem the tide of rre-colonization.

    "History is a clock people use to tell their historical culture and political time of the day. It's a compass that people use to find themselves on the map of human geography. The history tells them where they have been, where they are and what they are. But most importantly history tells a people where they still must go and what they still must be"
