Memories Of Our Past…

20 Feb

Today I went to a Black History production and it evoked so many thoughts and emotions…. The theme throughout the play was “memories”…. Remember our past and passing it down to our young. I have seen the play in the past however I feel like I always learn something new about my history. What stuck out the most was the images…. Images of “The Freedom Riders”, “Jim Crow”, “Segregation” and our leaders who lead us through the struggle of our lives…. Without their contributions we wouldn’t have the freedoms we have now as well as a Black President in office…. Granted racism, inequality and injustice still exist however  we no longer have to live in the shadows of injustice….

*I have included a few images into our history…..

“I want justice to be so pervasive that it will be taken for granted, just as injustice is taken for granted today. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo

Enjoy,
