Our schools don’t teach us how knowledge, traditions and culture from Africa are present in the Americas. I mean, they DO, but I swear it seems like they glance over or whisper the info to students. That’s why it’s important for our families and communities to relay this info to our youth and not depend on our schools to do so.
