    IN Observance Of Black History Month "LET'S TALK BLACK!"


    In order to enslave us the slave master first destroyed our knowledge of ourselves, he changed our names, destroyed our religion, Our religion was “One” with nature and “One” with things that are natural to us, and he gave us his names and his religions.  He even changed our language to his.  When you take away one’s language you take away one’s history!  Next he divided us into opposing camps by arming us with false knowledge.  Then an incident was provided that would cause us to fight and weaken ourselves.

    We have always been lead to think that we are not who we are until we get an approval on paper from our oppressor.  “YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE!" So Join us for a journey “Black” to the future!
