Educate Africans Out of Slavery

As far as the institution of chattel slavery — the treatment of slaves as property — in the United States, if we use 1619 as the beginning and the 1865 Thirteenth Amendment as its end. The slavery of Africans lasted 246 years.

The impacts are always lingering. Consider how many years you’ve spent in slavery or harsh servitude. Don’t waste your time imagining (you’ll never have a flawless picture).

It’s clear then that what Africa is dealing with right now is post-slavery repercussions and a mental and physical state of influence.

Then everyone wants to ‘make it,’ even at the expense of others.

Given this, we should instead concentrate on educating people, particularly Africans, about a life free of slavery. Representation, modernism, empathy, and expressiveness are among its tendrils.

Because we aren’t everyone, our educational systems don’t need to pick up where everyone else leaves off. After 400 years of slavery, we should teach like God did to the Israelites in the Holy Scriptures. Delete the image of slavery. It’s pointless to reminisce about past fires.

Let’s start a new one.

In general, Africans require extensive re-education on the fundamental meaning and purpose of their existence, which can be discovered in the middle of our own difficulties. We will always generate leaders who shine at the price of others’ gloominess if we don’t do that.
