In March, I received a student writing award for an essay that I wrote for the National Council for Black Studies student essay contest. I submitted a paper entitled: Origins of the African American Experience: The African American Resistance Struggle. The paper examines how original tactics used in African American resistance struggles directly influenced protest methods employed by African Americans in proceeding resistance struggles. I argue that immense planning, along with immense pain, and immense struggle, filtered with agitation are crucial ingredients that can be found within African American resistance struggles. Spelman College professor of history, William Jelani Cobb PhD nominated my essay for the contest.

I placed third out of numerous student essays that were submitted, received a check for $125 and an opportunity to attend the National Council for Black Studies conference free of charge.

I want to encourage students of African American studies to apply for this writing contest sponsored by the National Council for Black Studies. To learn more about the contest visit http://www.ncbsonline.org/student_essay_contest

Yours in the struggle, I am
