"The Personal is Political"
African diaspora political commentary, life-love-and music.
Oh, i so agree - Black History IS World History . . and it's SUPER important - It needs to go way beyond American Hype - and should be taught - if not in schools - (although, I, personally feel that is part of school function) Other groups should put events together that speak to the hearts and interests of the populace - we should create events that attract larger groups - and offer small group discussion - These Things are important - to EVERY ONE . . heck, there are people here (I'm in the United States) who do not know there have been many free black people who changed history, set a positive standard for EVERYONE - there are people who do not realize our culture is wealthy beyond measure through the diverse influence of Black People who shared their cultural heritage - Then, there are people like me who still wonder why we aren't taught African History when we learn :World History" - that's absurd, not to share Stories of people from an entire continent . . Until this moment, i never thought about my need to learn about Black History in the U.K. - golly, i have a l-o-n-g way to go . . . sigh. Thank you for sharing this.
