As time passes, we often forget or in many situations we never know the history of us as a nation and as a people. This book contains both positive and negative accounts of us as a nation of immigrants of whom many found success. It also tells the story of those who although worked hard found it as an unfriendly all too often a place of isolation and brokenness. There is, however, a hope that for what seems to have taken centuries to arriveâ€“a hope that black people have wondered why have the believers in an almighty God taken so long to acknowledge by their actions to speak out and express what is wrong with us as a people, a nation, and a world! For the first time, we see the awesome shedding of influence of people around the world speaking to those who have for so long ignored the plight and indignity forced on segments of society by using our political system and unjust laws to violate basic human rights of its own citizens! America, we can do better; we must do better if we are to be that light that sits upon the hill for the world to see! If we continue as we have done historically; the question will not be one of what happened to the village but rather one the world will ask in what happened to America?
