three lessons from this picture

3 wise lessons shared by Africa Cradle and recently re-posted by Pens Up Press author Janet Williams


“Three Lessons from this picture:

1. Sometimes the best response to provocation is not to fight
2. Not all opportunities are to be taken. Some are traps.
3. A person can become so determined to destroy another person that they become blind and end up destroying themselves.”  – featured on AFRICA CRADLE

As author of A Lighter Shade of Black, I explored my interest in fictional slave narratives and the divisions between light skinned (rich, house slave) and dark skinned blacks (poor, field slave). I am very interested in how this and other dynamics from slavery affect us today. I am also passionate about conquering the divisions between us as a people and imparting important social, cultural, and historical knowledge to the next generation. Contact:
