About Bettie Anderson's Folks - The Andersons, Boyds, Johnsons & Lees
"You can't know where you're going, unless you know where you've been." 

Soooo you mean to tell me that someone down your ancestry line survived being chained to other human bodies for several 
months in the bottom of a disease-infested ship during the Middle Passage, lost their language, customs and traditions, 
picked up the English language as best they could while working free of charge from sunup to sundown as they watched 
babies sold from out of their arms and women raped by ruthless slave owners.

Took names with no last names, no birth certificates, no heritage of any kind, braved the Underground Railroad, survived the 
Civil War to enter into sharecropping...

Learned to read and write out of sheer will and determination, faced the burning crosses of the KKK, everted their eyes at the 
black bodies swinging from ropes hung on trees...

Fought in World Wars as soldiers to return to America as “boys”, marched in Birmingham, hosed in Selma, jailed in 
Wilmington, assassinated in Memphis, segregated in the South, ghettoed in the North, ignored in history books, sterotyped in 
Hollywood...

and in spite of it all someone in your family line endured every era to make sure you would get here and you receive one 
rejection, face one obstacle, lose one friend, get overlooked, and you want to quit? How dare you entertain the very thought 
of quitting. People you will never know survived from generation to generation so you could succeed. Don’t you dare let them 
down!!

It is NOT in our DNA to quit!
