In this video I discuss the historical implications on the Black American experience and describe how, and why, American society is in the state that it is.
Education precedes change and America must change in order to reach its full potential, of a country that is not only great for some, but a country that is great for all.
I hope you all enjoyed this video and I hope you found it educational and helpful in explaining the state of this country. Please share to anyone you think may benefit so we can continue to spread education and make the much needed changes to the American system together.
