ABOUT THIS EPISODE
We should understand Black history as a continuum, leaving tools, vision, and truth all along the way. It is people, events, and an existing landscape called America. It all happened in context. We need to learn it in its context to itself. What and how do you teach, discuss Black history in your circle, with your children. If you know Black history in its deep spiritual richness, you learn to love our people. Woodson did not intend for us to simply recite fact, but to portray us in our quest for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness ' . On our mission, we have charged America, changed America, and challenged it. Our struggle has always demanded Black Power.
Every period of our history has taught America something about its own failings, and us about the righteousness of our struggle. Without Black struggle, Americans would not be faced with ideals of democracy. We need to understand Black history as a long, continuing struggle for Black Power. 365 days each year.
