Whew......last month was Black history month. *crickets chirping*. My eight year old was bombarded with Rosa Parks, and MLK. Now I respect the struggle they endured, and appreciate the road they paved for Blacks. My daughter came flying off her school bus one day after school and said: "MOMEEEEEE, WE WATCHED MARDA LUTHA KEEEEEENG TODAY IN CLASS". I asked what the movie was about, and she said: " they marched and got sprayed with water hoses". I also asked what they learned about Rosa Parks. She stated that: "Rosa Parks didn't give her seat to a white boy, and she went to jail, after that Black people were allowed to sit on the front of the bus"! Is this all that our youngins are learning about our history in America?!?! This is why it is important to teach them Black History at home, a history which goes further back than a slave ship, and beyond JayZ and Beyonce. What are you all teaching your children about their rich culture/history? How are you breaking it down to them?
