The Black Experience Page is only one small part of the Electronic Village. Shortcuts to other parts of the Electronic Village are located at the bottom of the page. We hope you continue to regularly visit this place where we discuss the Black Experience...
It is amazing how rarely people of color are included in the history that we are taught in school. We get a glimpse of Martin and a taste of George Washington Carver and a dab of Booker T. Washington. But, that is about it. Nobody mentions the tremendous stories that make up our heritage from the days before slavery. Nor are we told any of the gruesome realities of chattel slavery. We have to tell OURstory in order to maintain a balance. Click on the talking griot up on your right...and be transported to Electronic Village's rendition of OURstory!
