Civil Rights Movement
Civil Rights Movement

Black History Month has traditionally been all about the  Civil Right Movement and the categorizing that place and that time as the whole black experience.

Now that Barack Obama is President and the glass ceiling is shattered, I think that we need to move from 100 Civil Rights.
We have a long and powerful History of Great People!
Believe me when I say, I take nothing away from the Civil Rights movement, if not for the movement then we would not be where we are today. However; before the  Civil Rights struggle their were African American People that were finding a way to make it, and to succeed in society. Their were many people that through business, athletics, art, entertainment and armed forces, were able to make a dent in the Iron Veil.  The questions remain, who are they? and how did they do it?
The latest how did he do it?  Barack Obama, came up in complete oblivion to every African American tha was not in the Chicago political scene.
In 2008, does how could a man come through the system and not make a wrinkle! Then run for President and win, without really focusing on the African American community?
We need changes to Black History!
We need at least to change:
  1. Current Movers and Shakers
  2. Up and Coming Movers and Shakers
  3. Education of Historic Contributors
  4. Way to comment and
  5. Inspirational unity and ways to show it

We have a whole month to really Inspire our Race to move forward but I don’t think we are truly capitalizing on the opportunity.

Let’s engage conversation on ways we can move forward.

We need change!
