It Takes A Village

HE was often a SHE

THE WORLD (Naked Departure) — “But understand this, the runaway slave, even though he probably failed in his goal of obtaining freedom, was the first visionary on the plantation.  He planted a seed of inspiration and freedom that led to the next generation believing that there was a more desirable possibility, a better reality meant for black people and their children.  He was the one who would inspire the next slave to try to escape from the plantation against all odds and maybe try a different route, pick a different strategy, or figure out a different way to get the freedom that was denied of his ancestors.  And HE was often a SHE.”   Source:  It Takes a Village by Dr. Boyce Watkins
