About Bass/Swink /Sterling/Bailey/Gray

The Bass/Swink/Sterling/Bailey/Gray Family hails from Anniston, Alabama; Louisiana; Los Angeles, Sacramento and Oakland, California; Japan, and Sweden. Members of this family were enslaved, have worked as sharecroppers, farmers, teachers, librarians, business owners, store managers, government employees, healthcare workers, journalists and military professionals. We have survived slavery, the Great Depression, Jim Crow, the Civil Rights Era, various economic downturns and personal hardships. Today, in the year 2020, we are living through the presidency of Donald J. Trump, the COVID-19 pandemic, an economic recession, fresh-faced white supremacy, and civil and racial unrest in the streets. The daily news reminds us that we are in the midst of a new living nightmare. So, listen up, descendants! We must protect ourselves from a racist and corrupt president, a killer virus, emboldened hate groups, systemic racism and politicians who are complicit in the demise of our race, our family and our country. To those of you who were drafted and volunteered to protect this Great Country against all enemies, both foreign and domestic, you are not losers and suckers. We are as unique as we are one, connected by blood, marriage, friendship and duty to one another and country. Our ancestors built these United States of America with their hands, blood, sweat, tears and its very foundation rests on their backs and shoulders. Never forget it. #BlackLivesMatter #OurLivesMatter #BidenHarris2020
