BUILDING TRUST IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY .

Resurgence Multimedia Galley Exhibit : Homage to the Ancestors of the African Diaspra

Building trust in the black community through stories; That of The African Diaspora is a powerful way to awaken each other with enlightenment; to ones connection to the past and to pass on authority and wisdom to the next generation.

In the book "Tom-Tom"by John W. Vandercook he writes,

"A Race is like a man until it uses its own talents, takes pride in its own history, and loves its own memories, it can never fulfill itself completely."--This quote makes me think about foundation and how generations grew up in Boston having dignity and pride for oneself and heritage... As I read this publication, I recognize we are in an important time.


It is so important that we bond and find ways to connect through experiences, talent, culture, and conversation. There is so much to learn and be aware of; and we can do this creatively.
