Saturday, March 25: Day Ten

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

by Gifty Amos Nwankwo

8:30 a.m. we departed from St. Louis, Missouri to embark on an 8-hour journey (not including breaks) back to Northfield, Minnesota. As we sat on the bus I was left to think about the events of the past nine days and its impact in my life. It is said that History repeats itself; through the lenses of this trip I witnessed history repeating itself.

 After 10 days, 5 states, 9 hotels, 19 attractions, and 10 historically packed I saw how Emmett Till’s gruesome murder foreshadowed (to a lesser degree) that of Trayvon Martin’s. The two violated racial etiquette and paid with their lives. The bombing of the four girls in the Birmingham church would prepare us for the “random” disappearance of the 14 young women in D.C.  

Much emotion was provoked on this trip. I felt, to a lesser degree, the dehumanization that the slaves felt as their lives were stripped away from them in the name of slavery. I tried to put myself in the shoes of those who came before me in order to figure out how they overcame those odds.  Their strength and resilience overwhelms yet motivates me. Their adversity gives me hope that we too, in this generation, will overcome the systems of oppression.
