Educate yourself for you
Educate yourself keep reading
Educate yourself be true
Educate yourself keep searching
Educate yourself be free" -Garvey, The Musical
On Monday, October 17, my 7 year old accompanied me to a fitting National Heroes Day showcase of Garvey, The Musical: Roots, Reggae, Rock.
Having always been a big proponent of Garvey's teachings around self-sufficiency, economic development and empowerment for the black race, I thought a musical was just the right thing to introduce my growing daughter to some of these key messages.
