Why an African-American Perspective?
Red. Black. Green. The colors of the African diaspora. And the flag of the United States of America. The image symbolizes the unique history and experiences of a once enslaved people on the North American continent. Their collective viewpoint is most often different from the common narrative of the white majority. The two groups, working side-by-side for centuries, have formed contrasting and competing opinions on politics, social justice, economics, immigration policies, health care, crime and other issues.
African-American Perspective newsletter intends to present the minority position on a variety of issues confronting America. Through understanding differing viewpoints we can reach common ground. And there are diverse perspectives within the African-American community! Covering all of it is daunting. But we hope to provide the reader a peek into the world of Black Americans.
This is our goal.
