Nobody in the world, nobody in history, has ever gotten their freedom by appealing to the moral sense of the people who were oppressing them.

Remember your legacy … remember that this is only part of your rich, and untold history. As great as this is, there is so much more to learn and uncover. Black History isn’t limited to February nor is it limited to the splendor of Ancient Egypt. It is important to recognize the glory of Ancient Egypt, but don’t forget the advancements your ancestors brought to Africa and all of the World long before Europe was established - the advancements and development to India, The Caribbean, Asia, present-day Europe, Mexico, The Americas, the so-called “Middle East”, The Pacific, and so on. Yes, there is greatness beyond the Pharaohs, so please keep reading. Please keep studying. Please keep learning.There is so much more to you than what you have been taught.
