Friends, it’s February, Black History Month on onCUE!... Helping people "lead where they are". What is Black History? Is it a story of dignity and triumph or a story of victimization and idleness? How “leaders” failed a generation? Is the key to triumph under attack…Education? What is the legacy of Black in America…a story of bondage or a story of victory in God’s name? So the question of the day… February: Black History or His-Story?

All the early Black congressmen (and senators) were members of the Republican party. This is because the Republicans, exemplified by President Abraham Lincoln, were the party in office during the Civil War and many abolitionists belonged to the Republican Party. The Democrats were opposed to all attempts to banish slavery.
Thirteen of the twenty-two Blacks elected to Congress during Reconstruction were ex-slaves and all were self-taught or family trained. There were seven lawyers, three ministers, one banker, one publisher, two school teachers, and three college presidents. Eight had experience in state assemblies and senates. There were problems, however, as five of the first twenty Blacks elected to the House were denied their seats and ten others had their terms interrupted or delayed. Claims of vote fraud were the most common ploy used by Whites to deny an elected Black person his seat.
