This month, Black History month, is a time for teaching. It’s a time set apart, as we know, to celebrate, to reflect, to honour, and to move into destiny. Every part of the story that was hidden, suppressed, or deliberately left out of the collection of books about the life and work of the first creation must be told to the descendants.
Whatever the original intention, the life and work of Black people cannot be destroyed; no, it cannot be forgotten. It cannot be forgotten, for much of life reflects the genius of this people. Much of life moved forward because of their discoveries and entrepreneurship.
It is important to tell the descendants of the first people of their strategic place in life, for that is the key to their emancipation from the continued work of those who are bent on keeping them less than who they are. They need to know the greatness of their capacities and the innate ability to do the things that move creation forward.
Our boys must be reminded of how smart they are. They must be reminded of the accomplishments of those that have gone before them, those who are still here and they must be given opportunities to put forth their ideas into the areas of developing and constructing solutions and cures for the bold challenges of our time. It will take the genius of our people to replicate and initiate solutions that the future demands.
Look at a child’s face as it lights up with the knowledge that he is smart, and great, and able! So, tell them just that, because they really are. Find the positive things that they need to hear and tell them daily; in the morning, at noontime and in the evening. Saturate their minds with the information that will awaken their genius and in the end, our world will be better for it. Take this time for teaching seriously and teach our children the greatness of their history, their present, and their future.
