When I was a little girl, my parents made sure my sister and I were as knowledgeable about Black History as we were on any other subject.
So much so, that our home entrance hallway was plastered with photos and speeches of great men including: Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., and Marcus M. Garvey.
Recently, I borrowed this book from my father's library.
I found 'The Philosophy and Opinions of Marcus Garvey' to be both educational and inspiring.
I must say, when I reread or hear again speeches of our great trailblazers, I am heavyhearted at its present day relevance.
I still have hope that one day these dreams will be realized and we will all be free.
In Garvey's words:
This piece is "not to be read with the eye or mind of prejudice, but with a righteous desire to find the truth, and to help in the friendly and peaceful solution of a grave world problem for the betterment of humanity."
Be The Change, Royals!
