    Thanks Ere'one
    In my daughters school (which is black owned) they teach black history only in the month of Feb. (as with every other school). Well... I would ike for my daughter to know her history Everyday not just for 1 month.

    If anyone has any "Facts" to add for the month of March please post it. And I figure we can post Black Facts every month after that. Black history should be celebrated 365 days of the year. what ya'll think?
