Here we are, Black History Month. How far we have come! The great Dr. Carter G. Woodson started it all with Negro History Week. Do you remember when we didn’t even have a full month? Yes, even though it is the shortest month of the year, let’s really have a celebration in our homes by initiating those conversations within our own families. You never know what connections or surprises will result from those talks. Pull those books off the shelves in your public library or home library and talk about great negroes, past and present. How great is the discovery that we have those great negroes, now great African Americans within our own communities, within our own families?! By talking about and sharing our history and traditions, we are on the road to creating GREAT AFRICAN AMERICANS: PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE.
