Must Have Books
“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn. ”
This is specifically true for the offspring of American slaves. No matter the extent of their formal education, not knowing American slave history can drive us to be self doubting and feeling less valuable. This American slave information is not included in any course of study offered by educational institutions.
There are great sources of information that can be obtained at other outlets, however. We owe it to ourselves and to our offspring and community to learn as much accurate information as possible about how we got where we are, the American economic system, and the actual way in which our so-called system of justice actually works. We need to apply our learning to build sustainable communities and contribute the full measure of our capabilities to our nation.
