FB: Friends Once again it is Black History Month. It is a time to celebrate the greatness of our people and to share our greatness with the world. Black History Month represents the opportunity for us all to understand the significance of the historical sacrifices made by people of African descent as we were integrated into the fabric of the history of the United States. I am proud to share a history with a people who have endured many toils and snares.

He knew the importance of sharing our proud heritage with future generations. Even now, we all still benefit from the sacrifices of Nat Turner, Denmark Vesey, Frederick Douglas, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, W.E.B. Dubois, Marcus Garvey, LTG Robert E ...

Seeing Obama on the same picture as Martin Luther King, Malcom X, Frederick Douglas, and Marcus Garvey is offensive and insulting.
I guess, Marcus Garvey and them didn't know what they was talking about. WEB Dubois and Frederick Douglas, the educated ones.
Frederick Douglas is my favorite of Leaders before my time but havent heard a more wakeful speech than any of Marcus Garvey's. Know who leads you or unknowingly follow those who you do not know. I will teach the children & their children will learn about us. My bad, just planning my escape...
