Emancipation, a day to reflect

“Today, I remember that slaves did not come from Africa, people did…” Remembering our ancestors not as slaves but as people who were enslaved. Let’s change up the terminology in our classrooms, in our textbooks, in our media, in our discourse. In their memory, and in gratitude for them surviving so that we could be here. Happy Emancipation Day (August 1st 1834, Antigua and Barbuda)
