to promote the Unpaid Labor Contribution message
The symbol of a single black stripe in the American flag is an appropriate expression of the magnitude of the Collective Contribution of the first 12 generations of African Americans.
Even as a symbol a black stripe in the American flag is huge! But it may not be as big as the Contribution it represents. It speaks to a deserving place for the ancestors of African Americans in the American psyche. The significance of their contribution cannot be overstated. Those first 12 generations of Black people were vital to the birth, growth and survival of the United States of America.
The collective effort of those 12.5 million Unpaid Laborers working without pay for more than two and one-half centuries is yielding benefits being enjoyed by all Americans today.
The Unpaid Labor Contribution Project honors them and we invite you to honor them. They are faceless and nameless, but their contribution is worthy of our recognition. They deserve the honor and recognition of their descendants, and of a grateful nation.
