I would be wrong if I didn't give a shout out to Black History Month! I'm really excited about it this year. I don't know why but it just seems like this year I'm really proud of who I am and where I come from.
My Southern history is filled with ugly, horrendous stories of mistreatment and injustice. Thanks be to God that things have changed soooo much!!!
There is also a lot of beauty and wonder in black history. One of my favorite black facts is about Rosa Parks. Did you know she wasn't the first black woman not to give up her seat in order to fight for change? Before Rosa Parks there was Claudette Colvin. Ms. Parks was a part of a well organized plan that forever changed history. She was well-known and well-respected. Check out Ms. Colvin's story!
