Black History Month…

As we move into the 29 days of Black History Month (yes we get an extra day this year) What does it mean to you? Is it a time of reflection? is it a time for us to look how far we’ve come and/or how far we’re going backwards? Do you think Dr. King would be proud of us right about now? While researching what I was going to write today, I found this article on Yahoo News, if you do nothing else today, you’ve got to take the time out to read this, even if you have to print it to read later, put it on your to-do list.  It’s a letter from a freed slave, responding to his one time master who wanted him to return to the plantation.  I think you’ll be as tickled as I was with his response.  Whatever Black History Month means to you… Enjoy!
