WHO KNEW? In 2020, we saw systemic racism and deaths of far too many African American (men and women) caused by the very folks who took oaths to protect and serve…the police.
We suffered a barrage of racist, misogynistic, and “plain old dumb” tweets by the “Toddler-In-Chief”, Donald J. Trump. Our president.
We quarantined and watched “normal” fly out the window as the whole world grappled with pandemic and plague called Covid-19.
We saw courage.
We saw sacrifice.
We saw pride.
We saw solidarity.
We saw death.
We saw destruction.
We saw despair.
We saw hate.
As we entered 2021, we hope to saw GRACE and LOVE abound. We elected a new President, Joe Biden and the first ever female AND person of color as our new Vice President, Kamala Harris. This year will be our time to push forward while America is in this time of reckoning and period of awakening. We cannot afford to sleep. We must remain “WOKE” and focused.
WE NEED TO CREATE THE DREAM WE SEEK AS WE EMERGE FROM THIS NIGHTMARE.
As the nation rebuilds, so shall we. We worked hard and elected a new President and Vice-President. This is OUR TIME. The pandemic did not divide us. Quite the opposite, it drove us closer together.
So, to our seasoned AFRAM veterans and to our newest AFRAM soldiers, we say:
“Welcome to AFRAM”
