I learned about history from my older brother. He was in college while I was young. As he gained increased knowledge and understanding in our culture, he was very intentionally in passing that desire to learn on to me. My first book was given to me for Kwanzaa and it was a Zora Neale Hurston book. From there I was introduced to others. More importantly, I began to seek out opportunities and venues in my community that would allow me to learn, develop pride, and become more connected with my history.
