“I’ve had the privilege of growing up in a tradition that didn’t believe in the myths and the legends because we had to bear the brunt of them. Either we’re going to change…or we’re going to do this again and again, and babies are going to have to grow up without mothers and fathers, uncles and aunts, friends, while we are trying to convince white folk to finally leave behind a history — or embrace a history — that might set them free from being white. Finally.” ~Eddie S. Glaude Jr.
