The Unofficial Start of Black History Month!

That's right! I say it starts today. Yay for Black History!

Reading Sidney Poitier's biography this morning got me thinking a lot about my own blackness. Also reading 2 articles questioning Barack Obama's blackness made me wonder about my own heart and attitude on how black-I-am. This and other topics will be explored in a very personal way this month. Other Black History Month topics I'll present are:
  • My Black heroes
  • My dad
  • The words black and dark and their negative connotations
  • How slavery still lingers

Today is a very busy day for me so I won't likely post until tomorrow. Until then be happy and celebrate!
