BLACK HISTORY

I want to be out there on the firing line, helping, directing or doing something to try to make this a better world, a better place to live.

John Hope Franklin

When you control a man’s thinking you do not have to worry about his actions. You do not have to tell him not to stand here or go yonder. He will find his “proper place” and will stay in it. You do not need to send him to the back door. He will go without being told. In fact, if there is no back door, he will cut one for his special benefit. His education makes it necessary.

Dr. Carter G. Woodson

The Mis-Education of the Negro

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

Harriet Tubman

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it….The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
