“Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our minds.”
My 11 year old daughter has an assignment where she needs to read Elizabeth Bishop’s “The Fish” and Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song” to find quotes and acts of freedom then, connect them. I found this song interesting as I have never heard it. “Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery; none but ourselves can free our minds” can relate to so many aspects of our lives, not just the literal, but also those figurative binding chains. How will you free your mid from mental slavery?
