It's Black History Month

And we have an extra day in Black History month. Yay, I say sarcastically.
You know what kind of pisses me off about Black History Month--we trot out the same stories about the same sports figures and entertainers. What about Marcus Garvey, what about Nat Turner?
What about people in your community that have changed the city where you live? Isn't it time to stop teaching our kids that music and sports are the only way to have a better life?
And the Black History figure of the week is Zora Neale Hurston. Goggle her!
