The Legacy Of African Americans In Atlantic City New Jersey

Beyond the standard observation of the racial caste system and Jim Crow I observed several other key points in the legacy of Black prosperity and struggle in this nation:

  1. Job opportunities is the "water" within which all Black development "swims" in.  We as a free people are prone to migrate to where the jobs are - just like everyone else.
  2. When there is a need for goods and services to be produced in support of our standard of living - Black people have a long history of meeting this need
  3. The use of political graft and corruption was present in the past, is present now and will always be present.  The task is to mitigate this force and instead build a more sound foundation built upon transparency
