What’s Up With Black History Month

I’ve been thinking about BHM, and wanted to say something about it on ARL, so I did a little digging.  The first thing I came up with was Cynthia Tucker’s article that was published locally in the Chronicle on 2/9/09.  I think Tucker did a brilliant job elucidating the issues around keeping up the tradition, while simultaneously looking forward to better days.  I hope to share this with my students.  Let’s hear your thoughts.

    I used to covet Mr. Freddie Douglass’s famous grey stripe in his hair. In fact, I think I tried to copy it when I was 11 or 12 with kool-aid.

    As you can tell, I really focused on the important things in school.
