The story of Africa and African descendants does not start with colonization or slavery. By accepting these so called beginnings we are looking at our own histories through a shattered mirror. I challenge all of you to break free from the inaccurate definitions of Africa that have been molded by biased intellectual frameworks. Always remember that the most powerful and truthful stories told are by the natives of the land.
