Alred C. Frett

When Blacks forget their History of Survival:

We are now deep in Black History Month but can hardly tell because Black Lives still seem not to matter and we are better off neither being seen nor heard… As the World changes before our very eyes, some things remain unchanged while some that took Centuries now happen in mere years… Slaves still put their Hope and Trust in the fables of White Gods and Imaginary Friends.
