“They Speak to Me: Voices from the Past” is a creative work designed to educate, as well as inspire, a young generation of African Americans. If you don't know where you come from, how can you know where you are going? Dr. Carter G. Woodson said it best, “the education of any people should begin with the people themselves.” The truth that is revealed in this book will cause a paradigm shift in the minds of future carriers of African American culture. The voices of our ancestors speak to a generation that seemingly does not know the price that was paid for the benefits they enjoy in 2017. We need the truth to be told! Therefore, we must listen to the voices of the past because it is that truth that will set us free.
