I like and appreciate Sojourner Truth because she was a hard working woman who loved so deeply. She loved her mother, father, children, and all people, even her slave masters who forced her to search for the TRUTH about who she was and that’s a CHILD of GOD. Sojourner worked so hard in the house and the field, that it was told that her slave masters said “she is worth more to them than some men….”. I want to strive to be like her because, she understand what it meant to connect with her ancestors and how she needed GOD in her life to do so.
Happy Birthday to Sojourner Truth and for you giving me a gift of love that I want to share it with the world.
Ms. Sharon Parker, President of Remembering Our Ancestors Synergistic Association, (ROASA), Inc., is please to invite you to our new blog. As we connect with intellectual individuals all over the world, the “speak2ancestors” blog will serve as an information portal to provide various knowledge about famous individuals who have achieved greatness in every aspect of life. (Watch our Ancestral Sighting’s videos on our eNetworking Channel at http://www.roasalives.org).
Remember, ANCESTORS are not just people who are descended they are also people who are living and serve as an influence or a role-model for others.
History is critically important to learning about self and for defining ones identify. Every culture has heroic people on whose shoulders they stand that they can look up to. Every culture needs to remember these people and to tell their stories, learn from their life lessons, and to pass on and emulate their positive traits. Feeling a connection to one’s history greatly impacts the forming of a positive identity. This powerful connection empowers the youth to be leaders and also deters them from being swayed toward the myriad of negative influences surrounding them. Through ROASA creative and interactive program like R.Y.E.S., we aim to empower young people to not only value themselves but to learn about and embody the positive traits of heroic individuals like, Carter G. Woodson, Fredrick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Mary McLeod Bethune, Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. Dubois, Thurgood Marshall, Martin Luther King, Jr., Charles Drew, Langston Hughes, Rosa Parks and so many others. Ms. Parker understands this and is pleased to spread the RYES program in Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia (DMV) area so that all youth can learn about the importance of knowing the lives of notable African Americans.
