The day I learned my history did not start with slaves arriving in America, my life changed.

Having a new, different, and better perspective of myself, my history, and my people has had such a positive impact on my life thus far.

The more I learn about my history, before African enslavement, the more I want to spread that knowledge.

I was sleep, now I am aware, I am seeking consciousness to be fully WOKE.

I’m not entirely WOKE now because I still have so many questions, and there is still so much to learn…

  1. Sleep
  2. Aware
  3. Conscious
  4. Woke

Where are you on this list?

Tariq Nasheed is beyond brave for exposing the truth and breaking the stereotypes which surround people who have melanin, admirable for taking the time to fact check, gather evidence, and spreading the real history of this world.

For so long, black people, African Americans, Africans,  people with melanin have remained under a state of oppression, my question is how can we change that?

How can we change a system set in place to ensure our failure?

It begins with knowing yourself, and your history, gaining a better appreciation for yourself and knowing your worth.

We need to stop getting spoon fed the wrong information which is leading us down the road of thinking that we are worthless which in reality or history was interrupted.

I would recommend that EVERYONE, not just melaninated individuals, to check out “Hidden Colors” to learn the true history of African people which is essentially the history of the world as we know it.

It is our history, all of the omissions from our grade school/high school history classes.

Please watch these videos, this is not someone voicing their emotional opinion; it’s FACTUAL!!!

In a world dominated by racism, it is your duty to find out what you want to know.

Your knowledge will not be handed to you on a silver platter.

It is in a security vault, not in a textbook.
