Acknowledge the human race’s African origin

As a kid growing up in the 1950’s, my Grandpa wouldn’t let me play with the black kid who lived next door because he was…black. But in school, I was taught to love my neighbors as myself and the lessons helped me to see his command as wrong at a very early age. My travels to six continents and meeting people of every color have only confirmed how wrong he was.
