I am so appreciative for having previous generations that don't let me forget nor ignore the history of my ancestors. I know that my elders have high expectations of my peers and I. I take this challenge seriously and I know that it is important to share the knowledge that I've gained to my peers and future generations. I'm even thinking of getting another degree in Africa/American Studies...we'll see.
Until then I leave you with this song by the great Nina Simone called "Young, Gifted, & Black." This captures my current feelings on the Black Consciousness. Enjoy!
