History and Culture

Black history dates back to the motherland ‘AFRICA’ as black people. in the present day, we exist in different places around the world due to forced and willful migration, it is evident that we can relate to each other’s differences and similarities based on ethnicity, physical features, languages, cultures, and lifestyles, but it all boils down to one fact and that is ‘we are one people with one life struggle’ so, if our struggles are similar, why can’t we be stronger together in order to face our struggles as one people without fear, shame and resentments but with one hope for a better future.

We’ve arrived at a time of revolution in our world, a time where the truth about the black race is gradually unveiling itself and we are beginning to realize who we truly are.

Marcus Garvy Quote ‘ a people without the knowledge of their past origin, history & culture is like a tree without a root”

For decades, We have been blessed with past and present heroes who fought to preserve our lives and rights, but it is our responsibility to discover, recover and reclaim our history & culture.
