Araminta’s Place: Calling Forth All the Good!

Updated: May 10, 2022

In confronting our historical realties, particularly as non-immigrant Africans in America (NIAAs), we find there are at least two that are noteworthy as we go forward in the face of two global pandemics, the public health crises of systemic racism and COVID 19. In memory of our beloved Congressman John Lewis, known as the conscience of Congress, if not America, let us use as food for thought to of our options, both of which are true. I will draw from two quotes in my book, Our Health Matters: Guide to ah African (Indigenous) American Psychology and Cultural Model for Creating a Climate and Cultural Health, pg.51.

“We the unwilling, led by the unqualified, have done the unbelievable for so long with so little. We now attempt the impossible with nothing.”

“It is no longer true we have nothing, as we are once again learning and remembering what our ancestors already knew and demonstrated. In actuality, we have everything within us that we need. We always have and we always will, as we stay true to their teachings.”

Be well, love one another, and laugh a lot!
