“We are all really one race that shares the same rock.”
2019 marks the 400th anniversary of the arrival of enslaved Africans to America. Many scholars assert that long before 1619, African travelers explored the world as evidenced by writings, carvings, and artifacts found throughout the world. While our planet continues to get smaller with great advances in technology and the way we communicate via e-mail, text and other applications, we still find that human relations have not advanced as much as we would hope. Sure, there is substantial progress from what our ancestors faced long ago in this land. However, it is critically important that today’s truth seeker is exposed to all of the stories that teach us who we are and what it means to be a human being. After all, we are really one race that shares the same rock. Our collective interest represents our core strength. In this issue of SoulVision Magazine, we talk to some of the new storytellers and artists who are using their talents to lift as we all climb.
