It’s too easy to forget how to be gentle with yourself,
to rest easy in the warmth of a familiar room
surrounded by your own beloved things
It is too easy to forget to use your hands
to give comfort and simple praise
to forget to give thanks
for the miracle of your own skin.

There are some things we must Never forget. Our brothers across the Waters were also forced to work for free just as our Ancestors in The Americas were forced to work for free labor Generating wealth for Europeans. So while the 1% live as though they are God’s gift to the world, they must be made to Remember that they are living off of the interest & off of the forced labor & stolen wealth of the black masses around the world.

What Really Happened in the Congo: Belgium’s ‘Heart of Darkness’

Leopold famously said when he was forced to hand over the Congo Free State to the Belgian nation: “I will give them my Congo but they have no right to know what I have done there,” and proceeded to burn archives.

African Burial Ground in East Harlem to be memorialized
Originally scheduled for renovation throughout 2015 to 2019, the MTA’s bus depot at 2460 Second Ave. (between 126th and 127th streets) will instead shut down permanently Jan. 5, 2015 to make way for an African Burial Ground memorial.
A major ancestral awakening of New York City’s sordid slave history occurred in 2008, when Department of Transportation employees unearthed a 17th century African gravesite while refurbishing the Willis Avenue Bridge. The MTA offered to renovate the area in 2010.
“They emphasized one thing,”said Patricia Singletary, leader of the Harlem African Burial Ground Task Force, which seeks preservation and official recognition of the cemetery. “That was, ‘We’re going to be very respectful of the bones,’ and they repeated [it]. Well, that unnerved us because if they said that, they must have found something.”
The land—previous property of the Reformed Low Dutch Church of Harlem, later known as the Elmendorf Reformed Church, from 1665 to 1869—started as a cemetery after land-grabber Peter Stuyvesant had enslaved Africans, in the mid-1600s, build a nine-mile road from lower Manhattan to what was then a rural area named Nieuw Haarlem. He erected a church on First Avenue between 126th and 127th streets, setting aside a quarter acre of land later known as the “Negro Burying Ground” and eventually, “The Harlem African Burial Ground.”
Church records indicate that an unknown number of free, as well as enslaved, Africans from all over Manhattan are buried there.
“The Harlem community is watching and very concerned about what’s going on,” said Singletary, also pastor of Elmendorf Reformed Church, now at 171 E. 121st St., which owns the land. “We just want the burial ground to be memorialized, properly commemorated and preserved.”
 City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito added, “We’ve already started to work on [the memorial]. Residential is a thought, but it has to be done in a respectful way.”
In 2010, the MTA planned to upgrade the dilapidated depot next year, but activists’ demands that it be converted into a memorial scuttled the plan.
Once the MTA evacuates the depot, which opened in 1947 as a trolley yard, the site will revert back to city control under a lease agreement between the two.
