Revolution Era - Your Roots are Royal Campaign
Black history has been through the uprisings and up-liftings brought on in the world by some of the most prolific and legendary men and women of our culture. We are thankful today to see how the fire of our ancestors burn in our souls to keep fighting for our rightful seats in history — whether we are building our own tables or breaking through to others.
We have fought for generations to prove why we are needed on this Earth and will revolt every chance that provides itself. Our voices are getting louder each day and will only amplify stronger as we build the knowledge of how to fight the systems that continue to oppress us. The wars and battles on Black lives are a steady and tiring fight we face daily within the history of the world. No matter where we go or who we are with, we always face a distinct threat. With facing these threats, we have also birthed various revolutions that proven how important the roots and Black spirit are that ignite within us.
With our changing needs and causes, we still rely on symbols of our past to carry us along the way as a reminder of what our ancestors have started. The hair pick, raised fist, and so many others are timeless keys to our identity and remain classic symbols of who we are and how we can continue to grow. Without these symbolic keys of our history, how will we know what we have gone through and what is still in store for us?
While the revolution was never televised, our strength in power and unity has granted our younger generations to always have a means to it.
