Chicken George Economics for Black Empowerment

Chicken George was instantly my least favorite but ultimately my favorite character of Roots. He seemed to be such a far cry from his grandfather, Kunta Kinte. Yet, he was ultimately the one who was able to achieve what his grandfather couldn’t…his Freedom.

What guidance does Chicken George have for us?

Do we pursue freedom like Kunta Kinte? Or are we pursuing it like Chicken George? Or, would we admit that we don’t even pursue it anymore?

What do you think?
