Note from LawdyMissClawdy:
As most of you know, Bernard W. Saunders has been Editor-in-Chief of LawdyMissClawdy – Life Speaks since its inception. He has been my dear friend for close to 40 years and I consider him my brother. Bernard has been my sounding board and critic of my writing during these years and he has been my confidant, advisor and, more importantly, fellow warrior for justice for all of those years. Bernard is a highly respected author and, aside from being a book author he has published many enlightened articles and observations on Mankind and the struggle of the Black Man both on this website, on his own blog, GhikaSpeaks and elsewhere.
Having dealt for 70 some-odd years with the rampant elitism, racism and double standard saturating all facets of life here in America, Bernard traveled all over the world looking for a place to retire in peace and tranquility. He chose Ghana. He wrote the following before he moved there and it unfortunately got lost until now, when it is thankfully finally seeing the light of day here on this site. I apologise for the less than stellar quality of this post, but I had no actual manuscript and found my only resource to be these screenshots. This is such an important statement that I nevertheless present it to you here. Here is: WHY GHANA?

Love his writings. His life experiences. 4ever in my heart and with my spirit. Pops was more informative on slavery,
civil rights and my own P.Rican history then anything I was ever taught in school. Much love
Hi there! I remember you, although I have not met you in person. I remember seeing some very happy pictures of Bernard visiting with you and I might be mistaken but I think I seem to remember you had a little son also. I don’t know how long it has been since you spoke to Bernard but it pains me terribly to tell you that he cannot see very well anymore and therefore has not been writing much if at all in recent times. You are right of course that he has always been one of the strongest and most poignant voices in speaking truth to power! He is very missed here in the states, but he has made a very nice life for himself in Ghana. Thank you so much for your beautiful comment. I will relay it to Bernard’s sister who speaks to him once a week or so, and I will ask her to pass it on to him. Thanks again!
