The key message for me was the passion of not giving up on the fight for equality for all. The fight for freedom, social and economic justice. the fight for the right to vote.
I questioned myself, why are we in such as mess today?
Why such disaffection?
Why so much violence amongst our youngsters?
Why so much lack of political representation?
Why such a lack of self sufficiency and economic power?
The key question is where is our destiny?
At the launch of Black History Month one has to ask since the first landing of The Windrush in 1948, what has really happened.
At a time when the early migrants faced major barriers and discrimination despite being British Citizens, they rose above it and became a power house within communities.
Today where are we really?
I could ask questions for the rest of this blog entry. However, we already know the questions; we must now look at solutions and implement them.
We must now put care and love back into our lives. Our destiny in is our own hands and we must act and work together to improve our society.
We are the ones that must take responsibility and to protect,educate, employ, represent and value our children as they advance yes advance in society.
During Black History Month, let us recognise where we are coming from and where we must go, not where we are going, but where we must go, to achieve the advancement and re-engagement in order to influence decision making about our Governance. We need not reinvent the wheel, as whilst this is being done were missing the bus, not even sitting at the back of it.
Its time to take stock and then act. the time for thinking about it is over.
Change only comes when we act and work together.
Reflect, Plan and Engage.
