Knowledge of self-history and ancestry is essential for success of an individual. This fact is the conclusion of a study by professors at Harvard University.  Children and youth are in need of this knowledge.  We have witnessed the results of this lack of knowledge. "Tell the Story ... Knowledge is Power - Our Intergenerational Interactive Activity" was created to distribute this knowledge to the masses of children and youth for an improved future.

Youth today requires more interactions within all generations to establish a solid foundation. During the 50's education was the activity.  This activity produced  1 out 2 former slaves being able to read and write. During the 1960's civil rights was the activity. Equal  and civil rights under the law for everyone were passed with participation from children, adults, parents, seniors, churches, and businesses. 

Tell the Story ... Knowledge is Power is the intergenerational interactive activity" for the youth of the 21st Millennium.  We must spread this knowledge throughout America and the world to produce success to improve our world.

Your contribution assists distribution of "The Story GrandPa Told of American and World African Legends and Culture", a reference book on the African Diaspora at an incentive price of BUY ONE GET ONE FREE for the holiday season. Secondly, your contribution ensures 1,000 children receive the book for Christmas and/or Kwanzza at no charge. Thirdly, your contribution establishes an activity to increase knowledge of self-history and ancestry among our children and youth for success.

This knowledge will lead to success of more youth and a more civil conversation on race.

“What Shall I Tell My Child Who Is Black?” is a poem of Margaret Burroughs. Youth in the 1960s was taught by the Civil Rights Era. In the 1950s, one in two former slaves could read and write during “Jim Crow Era”. After slavery, everyone pushed education. All of these time periods in history had one common element. The element was interactions of all generations in an activity of purpose with goals to foster success.

Harvard University Professors concluded in a study of success that knowledge of self-history and ancestry were crucial elements for success of an individual. By increasing knowledge of self-history and ancestry in the lives of children and adults, their success rate will increase. Listen to our children about this knowledge in their video.
