Black History Month is during the month of February, but  Black History is something that is happening in America today.  Regardless of your political preferences, this is the first time an African American is running for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States.  History is important to us all regardless of when it happened.  It was not taught in public schools many years ago and some schools still do not offer classes in African American History.  This page will serve the purpose of providing a resource for our family to learn more about the significant contributiions African Americans have made and are currently making in this country.  Please share this with other family members and make suggestions for inclusion of other sites that will help serve this purpose.
