In this trying times, one is left to wonder about black lives. Black lives in Diaspora. What does this mean to you? why do we still experience racism in these modern times? How does this impact on the children? on their children? How do we compare our experiences in Diaspora to the experiences of blacks in Africa?
A big dilemma this is? Does the average black African really know the history of racism? do they know the impact in the western societies on blacks in Diaspora?
There is a great wave of awakening all over the world, but the question is, how do we make an impact as individuals? collectives? as a society, as a people, as a world.
Truth is we must all come together to make this change not only possible but also take place. Educationists like Tia Shodehinde have suggested intensive re-education of ourselves and continued education of our children about black history both in Diaspora and in Africa, while some other scholars believe that the creation of wealth, values and the unity of Blacks will indeed lead to the progressive development of Africa.
