Black History Month | E12

Black History Month | E12

Speaking and screaming with Thabisa Rich about more than 500 years of Racism & colorism that sometimes imprisons us and sometimes frees us.


Thabisa Rich and Sarahi discuss the continued existence racism of today and how it still affects our culture. We discuss the history of how the colonizers kidnapped us from Africa and forced us to work… separated from their families.. children taken from their mothers and sold away. We discuss how painful it is that they became millionaires off the blood of our ancestors. 

 

Though most of this story is left out of the history books, we discuss another little known fact that during the civil war, many black ex-slaves fled to Mexico and the country gave them asylum. There in Mexico they became free men.
