Now I see why reading was illegal for black people during slavery. I discover that I think in words. The more words I know, the more things I can think about….Reading was illegal because if you limit someone’s vocab, you limit their thoughts. They can’t even think of freedom because they don’t have the language to.                                         ~M. K. Asante
