Learn About OURStory!
Some call it history. We prefer to call it OURstory!
OURstory needs to be told 365
days a year...not just in February. OURstory is often ignored by the
media. While growing up there are many aspects of OURstory which simply don't
appear in the traditional history books that we are given in school. One way
to share the story is with first-person
narratives directly from the diaries, autobiographies, memoirs, and
travel accounts of the period. Another way to share OURstory is to
take the time to live it as we do all around the country on Juneteenth!
There are many other ways to tell OURstory!
Another excellent way is to see our
history and culture as displayed by the Smithsonian Institution museums
and organizations. Yet another way to learn about OURStory is to find a collection
of hyperlinks to African American history information. The bottom line is
that it is up to us to ensure that our children grow up with the positive
self esteem that comes from knowing that they are descendents of powerful
people! This might be a good time for you to take the Black
