Quote Of The Day

Written By: Elsie Law - Jun• 08•21

“For more than 350 years Black men in this country have been dying with courage and dignity for causes they believe in. This aspect of our history has always been known to Black people, but for many the knowledge has been vague. We knew the names of a few of our martyrs and heroes, but often we were not acquainted with the circumstances or the precise context of their lives. White America has seen to it that black history has been suppressed in schools and in American history books. The bravery of our ancestors who took part in slave rebellion has been lost in the mists of time, since plantation owners did their best to prevent any written accounts of uprisings.”-Huey Newton
