Listen Siblings, I come in peace,
“Altruism is the mark of a superior being.” — KMT Proverb
You are the greatest being in the world. Though you were enslaved, your intelligence was unparalleled. The following story attests. It’s worth putting into your consciousness, though, that the story below relates to the African Blood Siblings’ (ABS) project. The ABS promotes diligent readership to create intelligent leadership. Intelligent leaders are a result of a Community’s investment. The ABS is the only organization creating Community Centers around the world. Below you’ll read of our enslavement and what Canada truly was: (just as the ABS is creating) A Community Center for Liberation. If you are impressed with your ancestors, if you honor your ancestors, please apply to the African Blood Siblings. Write to create African Blood Siblings Community Centers. Be your grand self. Subscribe, share, love.
From the Sufferings of Lewis and Milton Clarke
Dictated by Themselves
Boston: Bela Marsh, 1846
Don’t slaves that run away return sometimes? —Yes; there was one returned from Canada, very sorry he had run away. His master was delighted with him; thought he had him sure for life, and made much of him. He was sent round to tell how bad Canada was. He had a sermon for the public,—the ear of the masters,—and another for the slaves. How many he enlightened about the best way to get there, I don’t know. His master, at last, was so sure of him, that he let him take his wife and children and go over to Ohio, to a camp-meeting, all fitted out in good style, with horse and wagon. They never stopped to hear any preaching, till they heard the waves of the lakes lift up their cheerful voices between them and the oppressor. George then wrote an affectionate note to his master, inviting him to take tea with him in Canada, beyond the waters, the barrier of freedom. Whether the old people ever went up to Canada, to see their affectionate children, I have not learned. I have heard of several instances very much like the above.
