Because I have a young son it is MY responsibility to educate him...not just the schools.We focus a lot on the past and people that DID things to move our culture and society forward. How come we never talk about the people that are LIVING Black History on a daily basis? It is of no small coincidence that we are going to watch an emmy award winning violinist this evening...he is Black. Violin isnt exactly synonymous with Black men. We dont speak much about Misty Copeland..the famed ballerina, who was told at a young age that she was too "muscular" to be a ballerina she is also Black. We dont speak about several people I see in society making a change and a difference in the communities thru art, music, dance,literary, journalism or many other areas. I would like to acknowledge them today.
