Know Your Truth? collaboration produced by Cruvie Clothing Co.
Recall what you know about the nature of interactions between enslavers and enslaved people or solely amongst enslaved people during American slavery. Now, think about Reconstruction. The Civil Rights Movement. Today. Has much changed? I mean, really think about it. Has plantation life and all the politics, trauma, and suffering that came with it really ended, or has it simply evolved?
While some will try to relegate this term solely to politics, I propose that the magnitude of the psychological warfare that our ancestors and elders endured just to get through their everyday lives has shaped the way we’ve socialized, aka raised, our generations.
Why do Black children have to show how good they can be by demonstrating obedience versus White children who get to frolic and play? Why is colorism such a stumbling block within the Black race? These and many other topics and norms can be traced back to the plantation and the politics of it all.
