Remembering Black History Month – JLD

Remembering Black History Month – JLD

It is all too easy to focus on President Trump, Governor Ralph Northam, or Jeff Bezos, but during #BlackHistoryMonth, lets consider things that affect people of color. For 246 years, black men and women were taken from their homes, beaten, raped, and treated worse than livestock. Then for another 90 years, black people had to deal with dishonest sharecroppers, discrimination, and segregation. In the The Church and The Community, Page 100, I talk about attending a Historically Black College (HBCU) and although it was not perfect, ask yourself why did such a school need to be chartered. The scales were not tipped in favor of black people for over 300 years, and it will take more than 50, to continue righting the wrongs. Please consider the ongoing issues black people face. Watch this panel discussion on black migration (https://youtu.be/sT7WmKD3wXg), and, find a way to remember that February is Black History Month.
