    Once again, this shows that when all things are equal, we excel and in many instances, exceed the high standards that are set to defeat us. We have many diamonds in the rough in low income neighborhoods also. Hopefully, we will find a way to encourage them to also reach for the stars. There is nothing wrong or lacking with our brains. We just have to be encouraged to use them more.

    I am very proud of this young lady’s accomplishments. This type of intelligence
    is within many African-American students, but many people don’t seem to know that. Afterall, we were the first healers, teachers, scientists, mathematicians, philosophers, etc. With your families, watch the 3-set dvd entitled. “Hidden Colors”. After watching these, no one will ever make you feel inferior!!
