We were land-based agrarian people from Africa. We were uprooted  from Africa, and we spent 200 years developing our culture as black  Americans. And then we left the South. We uprooted ourselves and  attempted to transplant this culture to the pavements of the industrialized North. And it was a transplant that did not take. I think if we had  stayed in the South, we would have been a stronger people. And  because the connection between the South of the 20's, 30's and 40's has  been broken, it's very difficult to understand who we are.
