My Mind Was Colonized, But I Gave Myself Permission To Be Free

Having a colonized mind is like learning a new culture and speaking a second language, except you have no say in the matter.

To bring some balance to all the depressing inequality, segregation and racism I would experience and to teach me and my siblings we weren’t always captives of the descendants, victims, or helpless, submissive descendants of slaves, my parents also taught me about Black American and slave history. As I got older, I’d learn more about our struggle for freedom, equality, and basic civil rights were still tied to the descendants of colonization. Freedom and equality only lasts a generation it seems.
