I decided to minor in African American studies because I have always had a passion to learn more about the history that is directly linked to my ancestry. I am continuously impressed by the strength African Americans had during the time of enslavement and how determined they were not to allow their bonded past hold their future hostage. Therefore, I decided to minor in AFAM because my passion to learn about black history exceeded the 28 days society and school districts have deemed appropriate to show homage to them.
