We Live in an Encouraging Time!
Notwithstanding the continued legacy of white supremacy, anti-Black propaganda, and racial oppression, we live in a time where we have more access to our true history more than ever before. Black intellectuals unearth more pieces of our historical jigsaw puzzle via books and articles while Internet search engines point us to pictures, documents, and multimedia clips to supplement the information provided even in the most deficient social studies textbooks and mainstream media outlets.
Yet history is broad, and even with these encouraging developments, important people, information and experiences remain obscured in our historical narratives. For example, we can all name some significant figures in the Black Liberation Struggle, but our list often contains the same celebrated names recycled redundantly across generations. Therefore, we must reclaim our history and its meaning by expanding our pool of references and actively using them.
