Black History Month

You do not have to be of African American descent to celebrate Black History Month and appreciate the significant contributions made by African people all over the world. In celebration of this month, I pay tribute to Black History Month although I am not of African heritage, this month should be celebrated by us all.

Here are some photographs of a lesser time in 1956 taken for Life Magazine by Gordon Parks.






Thank God for progress and the understanding that we are all equal under God's Earth.
