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.

African American Book Reviews
African american book reviews: Ms. Long’s historical stories will resonate loudly in both the African American Communities and educational community. It is a treat for lovers of history and provides a new perspective on Black History with key questions at the end of each chapter. A well-researched journey that many of us have heard whispers of but never saw. She brings the truth to us all about what we contributed.
I have truly enjoyed reading “The Untold Stories”. For many years the truth has been buried and false narratives about African American history have prevailed, until now. It’s thrilling to see your passion to communicate a perspective to our children that isn’t currently taught in schools. I would certainly recommend ALL Students across America read it to understand the true history.
