As I woke up this morning, getting ready to start the week with my daily routine, I realized that this day would not have been the same without the sacrifice and leadership of one man that I came to know later in my adulthood life.

As a naturalized African American (originally from the Congo Democratic in Central Africa), I realized that this wonderful day (along with many others to come) could not have been possible if a certain group of people stood up for my future, knowing for sure that they might not get a taste of it as they confront unthinkable injustice and ideology rooted in the American society.

AFRICA is full of talented individuals. No matter where we are in the world, there is an African man or woman doing great things. This is what makes my job (if you call it really a job) so enjoyable all the time. As an editor for a magazine that focuses on showcasing Africans positive contribution to the world, it’s such a pleasure meeting and talking to these great individuals that I get the privilege to call “brothers” or “sisters.”
It’s not a racial thing, to be proud of where you come from. We live in a world where Africa and Africans are thought to be at the bottom of the development curve, considered by many the last human group to still get into the evolution bandwagon. Yet, when you look at the history behind the development of the Northern Hemisphere civilizations, you will find the contribution of someone coming from the mother land.
