Saturday School. We need Saturday School

Saturday School.
Did you know that a lot of ethnic communities have Saturday school for their children usually before and in preparation for a rite of passage.
We don’t have that.
I think we need that.

The cruelty of slavery and the idle passage stripped us of our languages, traditions, religions, tribal affiliations and identity.

It did not strip us of our humanity.
And humans need all the things that were taken.
We need traditions.
Rites of passage.
Religions.
Languages.
We have all suffered for want of it.
Our children suffer.
Jews , Greeks, Mexicans Koreans have Saturday school for their children. They are taught their stories songs truth.
They are shown their love.
Their history.
Sing their songs and do their dances.
We need a Saturday school
