“What Shall I Tell My Children Who Are Black?” is a poem of Margaret Burroughs. Youth in the 1960s was taught by the Civil Rights Era. In the 1950’s, one in two former slavers could read and write during “Jim Crow Era”. After slavery, everyone pushed education. All of these time periods in history had one common element. The element was interactions of all generations in an activity of purpose with goals to foster and increase success.
Harvard University Professors concluded in a study of success that knowledge of self-history and ancestry were crucial elements for success of an individual. By increasing knowledge of self-history and ancestry in the lives of children and adults, their success rate will increase. Listen to our children about this knowledge in their video.
