“We can not seek justice and then deny truth.”
This thought or line just came to me as I reflect on how far we have come as African Americans in this country.
Yesterday I watched “Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth”, a film that chronicles her magnificent life and inside of the film the images of African Americans being beat by white police officers, dogs sicked on us, and water hoses pushing our bodies against brick walls.
Our presence and ability to thrive speaks to the spirit of human triumph.
These atrocities happened in my lifetime, and yet, we as African Americans have never been offered any form of serious reparation from that period and well before it.
