Happy Black History Month!
'History is a record of the progress of mankind rather than of racial and national achievements.' Carter G. Woodson
The father of Black history made that statement in 1935, and he's absolutely right. While my history is something I and many African-Americans take great pride in, the bottom line is that we are members of the human race and Black history documents our progress.
For the next 29 days (yep, this is a leap year) you're going to get a taste of my people's history. On The Bilerico Project and here on TransGriot during this month I'll be posting not only general Black History articles, but some with a GLBT slant to them as well.
Hope you'll get the opportunity to check them out.
