Now tonight we will be talking about what Black history and the things that are good and bad about it that we see today. First glance most will think we are trying to be racial that's not the case. Most people think with emotion and not knowlege first so of coarse being who we are we are going to try to bridge some of these American gaps. Tune in from 7pm to 9pm central time be there or be square..

Is Black History Month Relevant? Does Black History have a place in American History? Do you celebrate Black History everyday or just in the month of February?
The Lines are open and Let's Discuss ~ Black History and Where We Are Today!
Why do we have Black History Month? This question is probably one of the most raised questions in the month of February in many classrooms across America. Blacks living in America during the early years of the twentieth century were commonly accepted as having little history other than that of slavery. Dr. Carter G. Woodson, the “Father of Black History” was fully aware of the tremendous contributions made by Blacks to this country. The accomplishment made by Blacks after slavery was celebrated in Black communities across the nation. In 1926, Dr. Carter Woodson initiated a national Negro History week to recognize and promote the achievements of Black Americans. It is commonly said that Woodson selected February to encompass the birthdays of two great Americans who played a prominent role in shaping black history, namely Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. Some may ask what is so special or different about the history of Blacks living in America that warrants a month or even a year of celebration. Our guest speaker, Nathaniel Larimore has taught Social Studies for fourteen years in the Baltimore City Public Schools System. He has been teaching American Government and African American Studies at Baltimore City College High School since 2003. His current teaching assignments at Baltimore City College are American Government- CP and Theory of Knowledge-IB.
WE NEED TO LOVE WHO WE ARE AS BLACK PEOPLE..... TALK ABOUT IT
in Self Help
February was chosen by author and historian Carter G. Woodson as the time for the original Black History Week because it took so long for the news to get around to Black folks that slavery had been abolished. Mr. Woodson's book, The Mis-Education of the Negro, addresses issues of education, economics and self esteem that we would be well served to take heed to in 2014. Many of the hindrances spoken of in a book written in 1933 are still alive and well today, with this in mind a look at history may be just what our modern society needs. Let us remember, those who do not learn from the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them. Join us this Thursday, February 20th from 7p-9p CDT on Rap Sessions Radio to discuss this very important topic. Log on at www.blogtalkradio.com/rapsessions or call 347.857.2097. Let us come and reason together.
I have a message for Black America. In light of this month being designated Black History Month, I feel this would be an opportune time to bring the message and see what resolves we come to, as a people. During the month I will be sharing contributions of Black Americans as a tribute to a great people.
