As we celebrate #NigerianIndependenceDay #NigeriaAt60 – I’m reminded of how colonization and slavery have affected our people and culture worldwide, especially in the United States.
I’m partnering with @mmupsx to support #TheBetterTogetherProject and the memorialization of the African-American experience through initiatives aimed at healing our nation. Please swipe to learn more and sign the petition: We can memorialize plantations.
We can demand the dark parts of our history be taught honestly in public schools. We can call on all industries to address the impact of the Atlantic Slave Trade, in a way we’ve never been forced to reckon with.
