    • Hi Nasay,

      I really enjoyed reading your post about Weeksville and appreciate the personal connection you shared.

      Like you, I too was inspired by how much this community of free Blacks was able to accomplish in the period just following slavery. What thoughts do you have about sharing the story with others–your peers, family teachers etc? How can you use the Weeksville story to inspire others to make a change in their communities?

      Thanks again for your post. I look forward to reading more of your posts on Youth Voices.

      Sincerely,

      Ms. Lona

    • Dear Nasay,
      I am impressed about your post, ¨Free Black community¨ because it was informational. Given that we have wrote on the same topic, I learned more on the topic. on sentence that spoke out to me was Weeksvilles being home to 700 families. I think this is very informative because there was a lot of key details. Another sentence that I strongly agree with was your concluding sentence because we can make a change and prove that we are not just wild animals, we are on the same standards as other races. This stood out because we talked about many topics and I can relate. Your post reminds me of the recent topics we used to go over in class. With slavery, protests etc. Thanks for you writing. I look forward to seeing what you wrote because you have thoughtful ideas and I would like to learn more from you.
      sincerly, Shaquala

    • To Nasay: in your writing about Weeksville, why was you not surprised that the back story about the community was important? Also its a good thing that your aunt lives in the community not to far, plus ask your aunt if she ever thought about the history.

    • Dear Nasay, I’m impressed with your post it taught me more on the topic. And since your Aunt lives in a Community not too far have you ever visited before? But I 100% agree with you when you said “All of this makes me think that we all as black people can come together and make a change and prove that we’re not all about killing each other”.

    • Dear Nasay, I completely agree with you when you said that black people need to come together and make a change in order to be a successful team.

    • Dear Nasay,
      I agree with your post about Weeksville, It is very informational and know feel like i have a better understanding about what Weeksville used to be the the idea of a ” free black community”. I like how you connected what happened in Weeksville to slavery and other racist acts towards black people from the past.
