Yes it is Black History Month. I hope this is about the 100th time you have read or heard it this month. That would mean, people are talking about it…and that is the purpose of having a Black History Month. There is a lady that posts the most important tidbits of information regarding Black History on FaceBook I have seen. The site is https://www.facebook.com/groups/SDAAGRG/ Her name is Beverely A. Harper. I wanted to get her on the show but learned she is blind. Check out her posting at Friends of San Diego African-American Genealogy Research Group.
“To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there.” Kofi Annan.
Kofi Atta Annan is a Ghanaian diplomat who served as the seventh Secretary-General of the United Nations from January 1997 to December 2006. Annan and the United Nations were the co-recipients of the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize "for their work for a better organized and more peaceful world." Currently, he is the Chairman of The Elders, a group founded by Nelson Mandela. The quote speaks to a mindset that any young man or woman should learn and hear from their parents, their school counselors, and even their church pastor, no matter their color or creed.
It is with this quote we bring you our Black History Show for February of 2015. Kimberly Johnson, a young researcher, will be around to help me out. Stop on by and join in on the fun.
