Chapter 7- Lifting the veil

Douglass states, ” I would at times feel that learning to read had been a curse rather than a blessing. It had given me a view of my wretched condition, without the remedy. It opened my eyes to the horrible pit, but to no ladder upon which to get out.”

Recall a time your eyes were open after learning/discovering new information. How did things change? What did you do differently?

    Growing up in a foreign county where over 90% of the population is of African decent and looked like me gave me a sense of self assurance and confidence. We owe the land we lived on and there were many entrepreneur and people with strong work ethic living in my community. It was not until I came to live in American that I knew and understood racism and bigotry and while it was not necessarily directed at me I understood within a short period of time the disenfranchisement that Black in American have been and are still subjected to. This information made me act with more deliberation and raise my children with more awareness in light of the dangers they face in this country.
