I am a former slave on a plantation in Georgia. I was abused there and escaped to the north over a long journey, and finally made it to 2020, where African-Americans are treated equally to everyone else. My Goal is to educate the public of the horrors of slavery.
Hello Cora, it is great to have you in our studio today. Can you please explain to me a little bit about yourself?
My life has changed dramatically since being in 2020. I am created equal to all other citizens in this nation. I finally feel that my life is not defined by the color of my skin and that I am in charge of my own destiny. I was on the run for so long, and I felt like I was being targeted for the color of my skin. Living in New York now, I do not feel like that anymore.
I am really excited to use my agency to educate people on racism in American history and why it is so crucial to protest when there is injustice in our community.
Cora, welcome to Minneapolis. What do you think the most important thing to do when there is injustice is?
I think the most important thing to do is protest. As Americans, it is our responsibility to not let the people in power abuse their power.
What are some characteristics of someone who is a hero?
Someone who is a hero is brave, honest, and puts others' lives and wellbeing in front of their own.
