A Journey into time to present day what our Life's Journey has been in this Country.
When no book I could find as a child could teach me. Or show me who I was. I was lucky if People of Color got a mention in my History books.
I only learned in my Home. I only seen 2 Black Teachers in all my Education in the same school District from Kindergarten to High School. It took till I was an adult to comprehend and learn on my own the History of my People.
|My True Roots Memories|
My People were brought here to America as Slaves. Brought to the State of Alabama from the Carolinas. In 1865, My 4th Great Grandparents William & Minta Ivey were married legally after being together for 15 years and 6 children later. They had children that were born on the soil in Alabama. 8 Generations later that I have documented and researched. Not counting the many that are lost through Slavery.
My folks were a Mighty People of resilience. Now the World gets to see it in all it's Glory!
Now you can get taught the true meaning of our Contributions and how this Country was built by People of Color and how we have true meaning as Contributors to a Free Society.
There will be no more excuses. You can see it for your own eyes. If you didn't know. Now you KNOW!
I'm so Proud of my History & Culture. This is a personal Investment for future Generations. They have a place to commune and celebrate their Heritage.
This will be part of the Healing & Reconciliation this Country so desperately needs.
I can't even fully express my Pride & Joy! I can't wait to Visit this Summer.
I can't wait to experience the Museum with my Children's Children's Children's.
Your History has A Place. A Home....

"Everybody can be Great...because anybody can Serve.
You don't have to have a college degree to Serve.

You only need a Heart Full of GRACE!
A Soul generated by LOVE"
