It's Black History Month and wherever you are, you should be either studying Black History, or planning to create Black History.
Instead of discussing some great achievements by Black men or Black women, I'd like to discuss the great achievements that lie ahead of Africans in America. Those great achievements can only occur after we define ourselves with some practicality and foresight.
When it comes to Black History, most Africans in America start studying sometime around the beginning of the slave trade and bring it through to about the middle of the twentieth century. That's a very short history for a people with such a rich background.
We have to decide where to begin Black History. We also have to stop talking about getting rid of Black History Month.
Listen to The Bridge Radio Today at 4pm Pacific as we discuss the start of Black History and the argument over whether Black History Month should be abolished. Join Award-Winning Author Darryl James and co-hosts Tracy Powell, Dr. John Hamilton, Marcus D. LeGall III and DJ Gates on one of the most intellectually stimulating shows on radio.
