    Can’t help but think this girl was forced to grow up too quickly. No doubt she will do great things but dang.. did she ever enjoy childhood?

    Very sad indeed. Hope to visit Goree Island one day.

    The white man has committed some of the worst crimes against humanity. Black men are forever selling out their own too. Smh…. Life.
