Hello everyone, I hope you're doing well.
One of the great problems of our community is that we and our children are often kept in the dark on the ugly history of this nation. We are not led to understand the intricacies of slavery, how it came to be, and how choices made 300 years ago create the world in which we live.
Most importantly, we don't understand how much of slavery, oppression, Jim Crow and racial terror was driven by hard, cold economics. In fact, if most black people were aware how many trillions of dollars were stolen from our people, the reparations debate would be over.
To help with this issue, I've put together a lecture series in TheBlackHistorySchool.com called "The Economics of Slavery." This program consists of a set of recorded lectures I've given on Black Economic History and how all of this ties into the world in which we live together.
The book I use for this lecture series is "Black Labor, White Wealth," by Dr Claud Anderson. This book should be required reading for every black child in America.
This is a course for anyone who wants to have a raw and authentic analysis of America's racial past, the economic incentives for the creation of this past, and how these factors often influence our lives today. Right now, the program consists of a 7-lecture sequence, but I am going to continue to add recordings to the vault that you can view at your discretion.
The material is self-paced and pre-recorded, and comes with a 30-day, 100% money-back guarantee.
You can sign up for the program at a discounted price of $69.99 by using this link. The price will go up very soon, so you may want to take advantage of this opportunity now.
I created this program because I truly believe, at the bottom of my heart, that we've been lied to for 400 years. My lectures are designed to tell you the truth.
