History Meets Hip-Hop host Syreeta Gates, who can also be heard weekly on New York's WBAI public radio, pays homage to Black History Month via its founder, Carter G. Woodson—and his slew of equally accomplished namesakes. "Godwyn, Dwayne, Betty, Bunchie and Shawn. What do they have in common?" she asks before launcing into the infectious Lil' Wayne track Mr. Carter. "As Kanye West said, 'I make black history every day. I don't need a month.' And we don't. But we are still appreciative," she adds. "What bridges hip-hop for me are four people in three generations: My grandmother, born in 1926, as part of the great migration from North Carolina landed in Harlem. My mother was born in 1950, in the era of the Black Panters, Young Lords and Motown sound. And then my uncles, born in the late 60s, grew up in the 80s—the real hip-hop era."
African American Conservatives host Marie Stroughter goes one on one with Carolyn Maull McKinstry, eyewitness to the 1963 Ku Klux Klan perpetrated 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham, Ala., which claimed the lives of four of her fellow paritioners: Addie Mae Collins, 14, Denise McNair, 11, Carole Robertson, 14, and Cynthia Wesley, 14. "It was just an ordinary Sunday. What were excited that it was Youth Sunday, which meant we were in charge of every aspect of church that day, from reading the scripture, to reading announcements to bringing the morning message," says the civil-rights activist, whose 2011 memoir, While the World Watched: A Birmingham Bombing Survivor Comes of Age during the Civil Rights Movement, recounts the horrific event. "There were two things on my mind that morning: That I was the Sunday school secretary, and I really was proud of having that job, because I was only in the seventh grade. And the second thing was that Cynthia's father was my elementary school principal, and Cynthia and I were in a social club together. We'd visit at each other's homes and drink punch and play records and just laugh and act silly as girls do. But that week, we'd placed an add in the Birmingham World newspaper announcing that the Cavalettes Club would meet Sept. 15. And then it gave you the names of the girls in the club, but it also said don't forget to bring your $3—we were ordering caps and T-shirts for everybody. So I was excited when I went to church that morning. Then all I remember after the bombing was that I went from dancing on tiptoes to just numb that evening and night and on into the week."

BLACK HISTORY QUOTES

The creation & purpose of BLACK HISTORY MONTH is not widely known so lets have a little history lesson on the creation & purpose of Black History Month so that we are better educated on the importance of learning black history year around AND so that way we all get excited about participating in BHM
Carter Godwin Woodson (Dec. 19, 1875 – April 3, 1950) was an African-American historian, author, journalist and the founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. Woodson was one of the first scholars to study African-American history. A founder of The Journal of Negro History in 1915, Woodson has been cited as the father of black history. In Feb. 1926 he announced the celebration of "Negro History Week", considered the precursor of Black History Month.
Carter G. Woodson was born in Buckingham County, Virginia, the son of former slaves, James and Eliza Riddle Woodson. His father helped Union soldiers during the Civil War and moved his family to West Virginia when he heard that Huntington was building a high school for blacks.
Coming from a large, poor family, Carter could not regularly attend school. Through self-instruction, he mastered the fundamentals of common school subjects by age 17. Wanting more education, Carter went to Fayette County to earn a living as a miner in the coal fields. He was able to devote only a few months each year to his schooling.
In 1895, at the age of 20, Woodson entered Douglass High School, where he received his diploma in less than two years.From 1897 to 1900, Woodson taught at Winona in Fayette County. In 1900 he was selected as the principal of Douglass High School. He earned his Bachelor of Literature degree from Berea College in Kentucky in 1903 by taking classes part-time between 1901 and 1903.
