Happy Black History Month

The month of february is great after all. With love in the air for Valentine’s Day we must remember our black history in America.  Although the celebration should be a year-a-round holiday, black people now have an opportunity to exploit our rich history that has grown and molded African Americans on television, newspapers, media, t-shirts, classrooms…. ALL MONTH.  I am going to do my part in sharing a few facts, wisdom, and insight that I too have learned during this month of postings. So sit back and join the rollercoast of Black History Looooooooooveeeeeeeeeeee.
