“Black people did not “come to this country seeking a better life.” They were kidnapped from their homes in Africa, dragged in chains and loaded onto slave ships—treated not like human beings but like things, commodities to be traded and used to enrich others. Tens of millions of enslaved Africans died before even reaching America, so terrible were the conditions on the slave ships. Those who survived the trip were then sold to plantation owner.” Unknown.
Our past is part of who we are as a people and we must never forget it. But our future is the responsibilty of each and everyone of us. -LaMin SaWaneh.
