I am a descendent of African slaves. On my mother’s side, my great-grandparents were born near the end of American slavery. On my daddy’s side, an African woman was given as a gift to her master’s son.
If my great-grandparents knew that their great-granddaughter had a choice in her occupation, what would they say, or think? And what if my 6th great-grandmother Vicey, knew that I was able to chose the man whom I’ll marry? What would she say? She, never had the freedom to choose. None of them knew what it was like to choose when it came to some of the most basic life decisions.
