Thank you again Jueseppi B! More good memories;-)
You know what people don’t seem to realize is that Black History Month is really for *everyone*. Black History is ALL of our history! When the people in charge (“History was written by the Winners” Professor Garrigues, my 9th grade AP History teacher) erase or ignore certain parts of history in order to control people they are erasing and editing out important things for everyone, not just the people who are the stars of the stories being erased.
My Mom was a high school student in Greensboro, N.C. at the time of these sit ins and went after school to join the protest. I grew up hearing about this as one of the pivotal moments of the 20th century-and one of the important points of activism;hit them in the pocketbook and they notice!;-)
We used this same tactic in the 80’s to fight aparthied in South Africa, only that time it was divestment as well as boycotts-but it works.
