Reconciliation Begins With Knowledge In Americans of Contribution by African Descent

A new dawn is upon us, a 21st Century reconstruction period. The people’s demands can and will move this nation closer to justice, equity, and liberty for all. We have voiced our intentions to do so, and we must continue to move forward as our ancestors before us both black and white. The season of greed, corruption, power at any cost, and a shameful justice system must end. Leaders of integrity with intelligence, compassion, confidence, strong positive leadership skills, and respect and love for the principles on which this nation was founded, must be the basis of any—individual running for office and any politician seeking to stay in office. Individual merit should be the character traits by which men and women are held accountable, rather than the color of one’s national heritage.

Who are the americans of african descent dating back to before the pilgrims? What sacrifices, challenges, and contributions dating back to 1619 lead to the development of this nation as we know it.

A united nation can together achieve greatness, for divided we shall surely fall. Together the people of this nation have united against greed, corruption, and authoritarian type leadership, and we will continue to do so.

The disparities in wealth, employment, housing, education, and justice are destroying our belief in african american great nation history. With an interest and focus, we can eradicate the bad seeds and continue our journey towards greatness.

Those in the fringes, on the right and those on the left, deserve to be heard. America is diverse on opinion, attitude, and behavior. Our individuality makes us unique, but we must remain united on the things that matter and not see each other as the enemy.

African american history month, the history of american of african descent unites us, while racism, bigotry, and white supremacy are the evils that divide us. The principles as stated in the declaration of independence binds us as americans, under one dream and goal, which has yet to be fully realized.

The deliberate disenfranchisement of African American stories and contributions in the building of American continues to spread the white supremacy, which promotes racism, stereotyping, prejudice and intolerance.


History helps to teach patriotism and allows for the opportunity to feel pride in ones heritage and culture, which creates a connection to and individual’s true roots as an American. Focusing on the commonalities that bind us rather than the differences that separate us. This is a form of healing and a method of uniting our nation. Blacks and whites both made enormous sacrifices and contributions to help build this nation.


A full and accurate account of American history will help to show the contributions that Africans did to help build the nation and will also show the cruel behavior that was conducted for greed. History can also teach African American students that the majority of whites were not in support of America’s shackle slavery legacy. Work remains to be done in recognizing and holding accountable those who did and continue to engage in prejudicial mistreatment of African Americans.


An honest and true history helps to develop self-esteem and identity for children during the developmental years and for individuals as a whole.


Learning history, teaches about behavior and events of the past, which helps to avoid past mistakes.
