We should have let the Africans stay in Africa instead of bringing them here for slaves, but did you colored people ever stop to think where you might have been if that had not happened? If you had not been brought over here and if your grandparents in slavery days had not heard that great preaching you might not even be a Christian. Just remember that the South went through reconstruction and had a hard time. She owned hundreds of them, and she said, “I was so happy.
