DESCENDANTS OF AMERICAN SLAVES

Our existence can never be erased, it can only be changed from one form to another. . .

We Provide Information That Helps D.A.S. Truly Understand And Value Their Legacy As True Americans

Where are we?

Black, African-American, or Descendants of American Slaves? The cultural, political, and economic impact of  not having a unique, identifiable identity is devastating.

Who we are?

Descendants of American Slaves (D.A.S.) are uniquely American.

Why we are?

Possibly the most appalling act committed against people of color whose ancestry is linked to slavery has been to diminish and dilute any attempts to right the horrible wrong done.

We Must
Rewrite Our History

We all want to improve our world. But when talks about moving forward happen, only those acknowledged will move forward and those who are not will be left behind.

Gatekeepers exist to keep “others” out.  Our job is to understand and articulate our own value.  Then, we become the gate and its keeper. And, hopefully when we are secure, we practice equal access, equal justice.

Does America’s history of slavery make you so uncomfortable that you refuse to talk about it?  Do you believe images portrayed 24/7 in the media about America’s people of color, or about the rich?

For those who dismiss talking about a problem instead of looking for a solution, remember that although solutions may  present themselves at your door, you won’t recognize them until you understand the problem they aim to solve.  Sharing information, ideas, and knowledge help us better understand the problem.

It increases our chances of uncovering lies, untold history, and other deceitful acts that could destroy efforts to bring about a workable solution.  This is extremely important to a people whose history is largely unrecorded.  Misinformation and outright lies instill fear and bind us to the status quo.

Must Have Books

“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn. ”

This is especially true for offspring of American Slaves, no matter the extent of their formal education because information that drives us to be self-doubting and to have a feeling of being less valuable is not included in any course of study offered at educational institutions. 

There are great sources of information that can be obtained at other outlets, however.  We owe it to ourselves and to our offspring and community to learn as much accurate information as possible about how we got where we are, the American economic system, and the actual way in which our so-called system of justice actually works.  We need to apply our learning to build sustainable communities and contribute the full measure of our capabilities to our nation.

DESCENDANTS OF AMERICAN SLAVES

A must read for anyone who is interested in a fresh perspective on understanding of racial issues in America. The psychological impact of slavery, across generations, is clearly set forth. Insights are critical to Descendants of American Slaves realizing their potential for self-fulfillment.

DESCENDANTS OF AMERICAN SLAVES

Sociological and economic impacts of existing as a people without a clearly defined history or tribe is explored. The author offers a name that provides a starting point for uniting the offspring of American Slaves: Descendants of American Slaves. Solutions offered are also critical to the nation’s moving forward.

DESCENDANTS OF AMERICAN SLAVES

This book shows readers how to create structured networks for economic, political, and social empowerment. It provides a blueprint for solutions to a frequent problem faced by many organizations: people placed in leadership positions do not have the skills and/or knowledge to succeed.

MOVING FORWARD
CONQUERING SHAME

In order to move forward, Descendants of American Slaves need to understand our collective past. Separate fact from  perception formed by media images and stories. Fill in the blanks in our history.

Then its time to move forward. To form strategic alliances among those willing to work with us. To learn from those who have succeeded, whatever their race or ethnicity.

Descendants of American Slaves must first learn, from reliable sources, the underlying rationale for their belief structure. Separate truth from fiction. When we do we will begin to understand the enormous capabilities that exist among us.

First, we have to conquer the shame that is a legacy of slavery.  We have to understand the impact of mental enslavement in order to heal, to release the hostility within us.

Since the descendants of slaves can’t pinpoint each individual white person who is descended from slave masters, we reflexively dislike all whites. That’s why hostility sometimes gets out of hand and runs amuck. It was members of the white race who degraded our ancestors and caused our racial shame. This shameful degradation was passed on to us. We see and feel it every day, but because of the systematic way we have been made to forget about our history, we don’t fully understand what we are seeing or what we are feeling. Our inherited shame causes us to sense this dreadful feeling came from something we did wrong.
