Until the Story of the Hunt is told by the Lion, the tale of the hunt will always glorify the hunter. – African Proverb

Having dealt in college with papers examining the colonialist and post-colonial representational and re-presentational discourses within human history -with my prominent focus being on the literary reflections, the African proverb of my citing today did strike me with such an impact that I knew I had to share it with you right away. The on-goings in the world, in the U.S. in particular, are happening right before our eyes. And, though, not each of us is aware or willing to admit, we bear witness to irrefutable abuse and misuse of facts. Even as we all live through the history of the matters in question. History books, however, will compose different tales. To the dismay of those who have been, are being and continue to be mistreated throughout their lifetime . . .

To have “the ability to be the one who writes the history that indoctrinates generations to come with 1 sided perspectives . . .” It is in this regard that we must no longer merely sit in our corners to simply watch . . .
