You Never Know where You Going If you Don't Know Where You're From
Mental Slavery is Real
In the series one thing that Kunta Kinte drilled in his daughters Kizzy's head is that "while they can put chains on your bodies ... if you allow them to put chains on your mind you will always be a Slave". Sometimes as Individuals ( myself included ) we hold on to things from the past that prevent us from moving forward. These things as great or simple as they are can take a toll on us physically and emotionally. We can all be free ... but if the mind is not right , nothing else is pretty much in chains.
There is Strength in Numbers
For those of us familiar with Slavery , we know that the Slaves used various retention methods to rebel against their Masters. One of these was in their worship through songs and how they worked in the fields. Always remember that no man is an Island and things work better when we work together. If you genuinely need help .. ask for it and the result will be better.
Like back in the Slavery Era where Black People were not regarded as humans but "objects that produced children and labor", it is the same today. How many innocent Black Lives have been taken over the last 4 years? Too many .. How many Black people are working hard without pay? So many! History always repeat itself ... always.
