Today… In Black History

Black history is a history deeply engraved in American History. Lost in the archives of American lore we dive deep into its confides to discover the brilliance of blackness. Often times Americans of African descent have limited recollection of our history. Mainly because they are not granted to us in the history books.

Granted our value is revealed in other fields, our history has been stripped from us and our thoughts of being valued citizens in this country with it.

With this being said I intend to bring back a segment I like to call Today… In Black history. To bring life to our breaths with the amazing accomplishments of our lost ancestors.

This is Today… in Black history
