I totally agree that some of us were already here. Our footprints are all over the world! However we cannot deny that there was an era, when African people were literally stolen from their homeland in Africa and brought to amerikkka even while some of us were already here, my own father told me his great grandfather was from Senegal. His great grandfather was not already here! Ships were used, people were tortured and sold, and many of them came straight out of Africa! Facts!

Very very interesting.....especially the pictures that show African people "escorting" African people in chains to unknown destinations. Touching, sad....

Good intro/info from the journalist bringing out an honest perspective
Hmmmm which one would you be under the wrath of the devils?! Those who walked them to the ships eventually were enslaved themselves. Read please!

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
