We are a collection of voices, the assembled history of the many voices that have

spoken into our lives and shaped us. Voices of the past, voices of the present, and voices of the

future. There is an African proverb, “Se wo were fi na wosankofa a yenkyi,” which translates as

“It is not wrong to go back for that which you have forgotten.” This is why we continue to

remember the tales of struggle and tales of perseverance, even as we look to tales of hope. What

a people choose to remember about its past, the stories they pass down, informs who they are and

sets the boundaries of their identity. We remember the pain of our past to mourn, to heal, and to

learn. Only in that way can we ensure the same mistakes are not repeated. The voices make up

our stories. The stories make up who we are. A collected voice.
