Black Identity Matters
Black Identity Matters …
African Ancestry is in the Business of Being Black. We sell an African-centered product that is a tool for Black people around the world to better understand who we are. In today’s climate, our type of business is as important as ever.
It is important because we must remember who we are. Since our ancestors were forced onto ships and throughout every century since, we have survived the most horrid atrocities known to man. We have made it. We are the descendants of those who madeit. And we will continue to make it through this.
- It’s a fact that enslaved people utilized their knowledge of the slave owners habits;the land they worked; and the networks they established to PLOT and sow the seeds of change.
- Surely Harriet Tubman didn’t have a pre-existing roadmap when she devised the Underground Railroad. She was fearless and she looked to new ways of getting things done. She was a master STRATEGIST.
- What fueled the election of America’s first Black President? The MESSAGE.
- The Montgomery Bus Boycott is a blueprint for what can happen when we MOBILIZE and use our economic power as a weapon.
We stand with our partners in our communities who are channeling our collective fatigue, anger and frustration into constructive ways of raising social and cultural consciousness to bring out our best. We do this work every day and will continue to do so.
