The importance of Black history is crucial; the accuracy of this history is even more crucial. Black history should be given the same amount of time, depth and attention as white European history… This is obvious.
But the link between the lack of Black history and the predominance of mental health issues is far deeper than we are acknowledging. The power of our ancestors, of all the things that have been done before us, have been uninterrupted as the people untied and stood up against the hate. The power in the Black and African communities when united, within the community alone let alone in this world, needs to not only be remembered, but shared and celebrated; and emulate the strengths and finally get credit for the contributions made but never paid for by acknowledgment or money.
It’s time we start focusing more on history, real history, not only for our sake but for the children.
As I prepare for my first release of heartbreaking information, hidden information it would seem, regarding health care and the Black community; children, to make it even worse, I figured I need to maintain a balance on my page for within the community, be it historical or present day, there is something amazing and empowering about what can be done when the community unites…
I feel it is just as important to highlight the tragedies going on, as well as acknowledge the buried history of Black men and women in America (as well as outside of America, but I’m trying to stay on topic.) I’ll be posting random positive posts such as this on and off as we go through the mental health crisis and more, for it is important never to forget…In fact, to KNOW or REMEMBER… They didn’t teach this in school for a reason, and as KRS-One asked, “WHY IS THAT?”
