Until those black youths who are dreamless, hopeless, and in so many cases loveless comprehend that black love matters then and only then will black lives matter to them. We must teach them beyond the classrooms, beyond the bright white history books that our lives are as majestic as every other race. Each day I read I look to recover just one life and then another. For this Blackman who reads aloud everyday feels that our history holds the answers to our ultimate salvation. That’s why we must redefine the knowledge shared with truths not lies and unmask those lies that were purposely place to destroy our communities internally. Stokely didn’t write this I did but I was motivated by Stokely to live a committed life.
