William Cooper Nell’s work The Colored Patriots of the American Revolution was previously used as a textbook as a standard part of the American education system. This presentation by JC Hall shares the history of the black founding fathers and mothers who helped make America great.
Black Americans, once severed from their history can be convinced that the founding of America is not “their history” and so are susceptible to being manipulated into hating their own country and believing that the very essence of America is against them. Additionally, the message of victim-hood becomes a self-fulfilling mantra that dis-empowers Black Americans and allows them to be manipulated by power seeking individuals pretending to be their saviors.
More Than Victims reveals how a proud history has been stolen from Black America and reconnects them to the nation they helped make great. This presentation will put this empowering information into the hands of Black Americans, so that they can give voice to this history in their own communities.Together as Americans we can revive this proud history for future generations and can counter the divisive and manipulative distortions that have attempted to sever Black Americans’ attachment to their own nation.
We are not victims; we are MORE THAN CONQUERORS.
