An Old Wound That Never Quite Closed

My mother started reading this book about slavery and the whole process of it. She came to be and was telling meabout the things we have read. Someone it I still don't understand but it was knowledge i will forever store. In school they didn't e;aborate on this issue much, like it was some secret.

Futher into our conversation, we began to wonder how the Africans feel about the fact that African Americans are related to them, and that they were ripped away from them. They have know knowledge of what we would have been like. They have no clue of who may be related to them.

We want to know how they feel now about the many black people in the states and the islands that were once their own people. I want to know do they still feel the pain that was tattooed on their lives those decades ago?
