an·ces·tor
/ˈanˌsestər/
noun
a person, from whom one is descended.

No one living in America in 1819 could have predicted the pathway to our current way of life.

They wouldn't have seen a Frederick Douglass refuse to let Edward Covey whip him on an Antebellum plantation. They wouldn't have seen a Barbra Johns or her uncle Reverend Vernon Johns fight and defeat racism at its most effectual roots.

They wouldn’t have known that there would be groups formed, and people representing all ethnicities would join them, to bring about some form of civility and sanity to the American modus operandi.

They would not have been able to define Tribal sovereignty.

They wouldn’t have known to be thankful for Warren G. Magnuson.

They wouldn't have imagined 50,000 people could share single-mindedness of purpose for 381 days, like you and I know occurred during the Montgomery Bus Boycott. They would not have seen a universally beloved Maya Angelou in America's future. They wouldn't have seen a Barack Obama.

The concept of Diversity and Inclusion would have been laughable, and certainly unwelcome.

Everyone can own property? We all are permitted to vote? Hush your mouth.

But they certainly would have wanted to see it.

And in their wildest dreams, I believe they did.
