Wisdom Wednesday: Maya Angelou’s inspiration

Wisdom Wednesday: Maya Angelou’s inspiration.

This poweful quote by Maya Angelou as featured by writer Dionne Ford on her blog, Finding Josephine, sums up the reason why our history is so important:

“Hold those things that tell your history and protect them.  During slavery, who was able to read or write or keep anything?  The ability to have somebody to tell your story to is so important.  It says: `I was here. I may be sold tomorrow.  But you know I was here.’” – Maya Angelou
