“The great force of history comes from the fact that we carry it within us, are unconsciously controlled by it…History is literally present in all that we do.” James Baldwin
This powerhouse quote from James Baldwin reminds me of history’s relevance.
There is significant value in learning about our past as a people.
It is with us, and it influences us.
So there is a real need to learn of it – substantively, thoughtfully, and critically.
