"We were constantly — my generation — trying to prove to White people that we were good and we were smart enough that we deserved to be in America. But after I had gone through those slave castles, I didn't care what you thought. You just couldn't define me anymore … after I saw what had happened, I just felt like I am from an incredible group of people. We not only survived, we fought and we thrived. You know, and it made me feel so proud. A kind of proudness I'd never felt before." - Mona Boyd
