Quote of the Week: Why is African history relevant by Dr. Runoko Rashidi

"Why is African history relevant to African-American youth? Because an African-American youth who knows that he is descended from the people who gave humanity and science to the world, who knows that he is descended from royalty, is not likely to shoot his brother and brutalize his sister. The young African-American sister who knows that god was first worshipped in the form of a Black woman will not allow herself to be called a bitch."
--Runoko Rashidi
