Black History Month 2015
Time goes fast when you’re having fun! Black History Month has come upon us, and Durwin Randle’s Blog will be recognizing lawyers, activist, doctors, photographers, actors, musicians, etc., throughout the month of February, who have in some way changed, developed, & fought for our freedom.
Beginning February 1st
Everyday throughout the month of February, we will post an article in honor of African American’s who have affected our history as we know it today.
We invite you, and millions of other readers around the world, to join us and learn how African American’s have changed the world. Here’s a quote for you:
But let’s take a moment and think about how history (Black, American, World, etc.) has affected/infected your life. Has history affected/infected the way you think, act, respond, or believe? Has history affected/infected your character, your self-respect, you self-value? Has history affected/infected your mindset to believe you are a victor or victim? What does it mean to you when Dr. Martin Luther King say: I Have A Dream!
Yesterday was…Today is…Tomorrow will be…
“Yesterday was…” about history, and how African American’s have altered the course of life, which can at times be inspiring, emotional, and a bit upsetting. Nevertheless, “Today is…” our opportunity to create history and continue to build upon “Yesterday was…” “Tomorrow will be…” what we impart to our children, and our children’s children.
Mama use to say…
“It takes a village to raise a child!” When mama would repeat this quote over & over & over, I didn’t know what she was talking about. Now I can sit and write the words my mama use to say with understanding and meaning. Why? History!
History will always be history. How we use history belongs to us.
‘Til the next episode, chow!
