"What have I, or those I represent, to do with your national independence?" - Frederick Douglass. In a quest to find my personal independence, I had to find out where my ancestors came from. I set out tracing my African ancestral roots, and it lead me to Ghana. Upon finding out this information, I wanted to visit the sites responsible for myself (and many other Black folks in the African Diaspora) for being forced into the hells of the middle passage. I wanted to see a fraction of what they saw before reaching the point of no return. I spent time with the/my Ghanaian people, from visiting the local hospital in Keta and the village of Atito, to eating banku in the homes of local friends, and paying my respects to Kwame Nkrumah's Memorial Park. I felt their love, and truly I hope that they felt mine in return.
A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without consequence, doesn't need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled! My heart aches for Philando's family. #KnowYourHistory @yourrightscamp

Gearing up for the next round of donations and I want to know where you want them to go. Go to www.kaepernick7.com and click on "Million Dollar Pledge" to let me know what area of social justice you want me to address this month. "I believe in human beings, and that all human beings should be respected as such, regardless of their color." - Malcolm X
I want to thank the people for the support! My parents sent me these photos yesterday and continue to receive dollies full of mail in support! I couldn't do this without the people, I love you! ✊
Repost for the anniversary of Black Wall Street - Know Your History: Black History Month. On June 1, 1921, Black Wall Street, a major black economic movement, was bombed to the ground by American White supremacists. This remains the single largest massacre of African American citizens in the history of the United States. #KnowYourHistory #BlackHistoryMonth #BlackWallStreet @yourrightscamp @ravisionmedia
The Million Dollar Pledge is still going strong! This month I donated $100k to these organizations fighting oppression and uplifting our communities: Assata's Daughters, Grassroots Leadership, American Friends Committee and Helping Oppressed Mothers Endure (HOME), Inc. Three more months to go til I complete my Million Dollar Pledge. See where all the donations have gone on www.kaepernick7.com
Wishing those who are fasting a Happy Ramadan!
