Should We Celebrate Black History Month?
 - by Carolle Nau
Dr Martin Luther King
Yes, we should celebrate Black History Month.  Barely 100 years into 350 years of enslaved Black People, and with Black America characterized by gaps and huge chasms, we must stay the course of seeking to balance America‚Äôs scales of justice.

We all bore the labor pains of freedom, independence and inalienable rights that sparked the American revolution. Let us set a milestone of 350 yrs of celebrating Black History.

Letters to the Editor

Subject: "Nemo" Driving Ban
Wed, Feb 13, 2013 at 1:51 PM

We in the United States have many reasons for giving up our personal liberties. Now we may add snow removal to that list. The authorities acted as though citizens were in the way of public services rather than having public services serve the citizens. It was all overdone, including economic impacts.

Apparently all it takes for one's judgment to supersede all others is being elected to executive office. The positives do not outweigh those considerations.

Black History Month - Beginning 1926 in the United States
Carter G. Woodson
Black History Month was established more than 350 years after the first African slaves arrived in the US in Virginia in 1619. Historian Carter G. Woodson's ground-breaking announcement of 'Negro History Week' in 1926 marked the first public focus on Black History in the US. 

Pres. Gerald Ford made the month-long designation official during the Bi-Centennial celebrations in 1976.  Black History Month is also celebrated in Canada (February) and in the United Kingdom (October).
