Monday August 31 was the last day of a great Month in Afro Guyanese history
182 years after…as we look ahead. Our future is in our hands, don’t drop it!
“Though times have changed, change does not mean we discard the values upon which the Black community has been built, secured and succeeded over the years. We need to move from the present stage where the majority is surviving to where legitimate opportunities are ensured for all to prosper. The statement that Africans are at the bottom of the social ladder must be [known] myth not [assumed] fact.
The Black community has the capability to overcome, to succeed, and to take their equal and rightful place in society. This race carries within its bosom the dignity and power to overcome. Doing this requires reaching deep within and bringing to the fore what has been lying dormant for far too many years. Confidence! It is confidence that will make us straighten our backs, stare adversity and challenges in the face, speak out, stand up, move forward and achieve. The time is now for us to ensure the family, the community and the institutions of State work for us, not against us. Our history has shown we have done it, and if we did it before, we can do it again. Yes, we can reach for that greatness within us and overcome!”
