The movement the almost forgotten history will never be forgotten, the men and women who over came barriers, knocked down doors, uplifted and inspired a nation we read about them, movies have been made about them, and books have been written about them. We are half way through the month of February “BLACK HISTORY MONTH” this is still a significant time for the African American Communities to look back and also move forward.
