OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus‘s insight:

"Disconnected From Our History: The Residuals of Mis-Education, Media and Denial”

A Conversation we need to have and learn to have in our community.

OPEN MIC Saturday Night

“History, as nearly no one seems to know, is not merely something to be read. And it does not refer merely, or even principally, to the past. On the contrary, the great force of history comes from the fact that we carry it within us, are unconsciously controlled by it in many ways, and history is literally present in all that we do. It could scarcely be otherwise, since it is to history that we owe our frames of reference, our identities, and our aspirations. And it is with great pain and terror that one begins to assess the history that has placed one where one is, and formed one’s point of view. In great pain and terror, because, thereafter, one enters into a battle with that historical creation, Oneself, and attempts to recreate oneself according to a principle more humane and more liberating: one begins to attempt to achieve a level of personal maturity and freedom which robs history of its tyrannical power, and also changes history.”

– “White Guilt’ essay, James Baldwin
