Black History Month reading

23 01 2023

It is possible to learn from history. We should be able to learn without fear of divisive indoctrination.

Black History Month reading for my home. So thankful for the quality of work in these books!

More than ever before I am committed to learning from the mistakes of the past. This includes making right my own mistake of ignorance.

We love our neighbors. We listen to our neighbors. Eighty percent of the neighbors within a dozen blocks of us are African Americans.

I am committed to learning, showing love, and improving the quality of our collective lives.

Even if you stick to the fast-food section of the Bible, Psalms, and Proverbs, you will find a high value on learning from history.

Let’s learn so that we can show loving respect.
