Daily Quote: Sterotypical Thinking limits Our Potential for Self-Understanding

Daily quote:  Another Country…” We accept white people’s stereotypical view of who blacks are…goodtime people…and all that Jazz…being black was a terrible thing to be…I did not know who I was as a black person. Never to be looked at…invisible…must learn how to live together or perish…country has done this to themselves…must teach people to think…must teach them to think about everything… in order to know your name must learn mine”… James Baldwin
