Check out Michael Ross's piece in theRoot.com The End of Black History Month. Is BHM now obviated? An unnecessary abstraction? An ad gimmick? (you know my opinion of Kwanzaa on that count).
And speaking of theRoot.com, certain influential fanboys and girls have asked me to repost my Inauguration piece Tour of Echoes, narrated by Henry Louis Gates. It got a million hits when put on MSN.com; it's on theRoot.com here. (Can't embed it yet folks). Remember, the "transcript" is the actual article, with reference hyperlinks. Be nice if some of these bitter wingnuts would take a look, get some education.
So...Black History kaput? Nah. 'Cause black history is American History. No us, no America (on so many levels). Ironic, eh?
