Truest Fulfillment

“A race is like a man. Until it uses its own talent, takes pride in its own history, and loves its own memories, it can never fulfill itself completely.” John Vandercook

Heritage, in essence, is how a people have used their talents to command respect of other people.  The ultimate purpose of our heritage teaching is to show our people how, through identity and through respect for themselves, they can work to liberate themselves, they can work to liberate themselves from old ties of bondage.  A person’s relationship to his heritage, after all, is the same as the relationship of a child to its mother. From Christopher Columbus and the Afrikan Holocaust: Slavery and the Rise of European Capitalism John Henrik Clarke

 

My authentic truth:

When I began to dig deep into the wealth of the inheritance of my ancestors I came to know anew and enthusuastically celebrate my true identity as an African. Subsequently, the breath of enlightenment gave me new life, the truth of vision allowed me to see clearly for the first time, and understanding invited my ancestors to rise up in me so I strutted with fresh confidence.  How has the legacy of our ancestors affected your life?

Authentic thoughts are thoughts that are genuine and sincerely expressed. Authentic thoughts reverberate with other authentic individuals so they have an irresistible urge to ponder and or respectfully respond from their own unique perspective.
