BLACK HISTORY MONTH 1a.jpg

Important Question?!

Is "Black History" a

part of

"Humanity's History?"

Answer:

YES!

BLACK HISTORY: through the years.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH 3a.jpg

Every facet of injustices and brutalities committed against

"black-skinned Human beings" . . . and even against

those of Humanity labelled as "objects of color"

were witnessed & Eternally recorded in

those infallible

records of Humanity's history.

And whether man-made history books & ideas may

attempt to deny the facts, truth always prevail!

Now, as the world has entered a new phase of

realities - at home in the USA and Around the World - a recognition & celebration of "genuine humanity" is

now front and center in the spotlight.

And in that spotlight of historic truth, every

Citizen should now ask, "Am I truly appreciating

and  celebrating Humanity's  invaluable worth  and

contributions that are inextricably tied to America's

successes - even  though  those contributions  also

bare  indelible  marks  of "Black Citizens"  that

are in fact, undeniably . . .

"Citizens of the Family of Humanity?!"

If you're celebrating "Black History,"

You ARE celebrating

"Humanity!"

Born free in Upstate New York, she worked for most of her career in RomeItaly. She was the first African-American and

Native American sculptor to achieve national and

then international prominence.  She began to

gain prominence in the United States during

the Civil Warat the end of the 19th century,

she remained the only Black woman artist who

had participated in and been recognized to any

extent by the American artistic mainstream. In 2002,

the scholar Molefi Kete Asante named Edmonia Lewis

on his list of 100 Greatest African Americans.  Her work is

known for incorporating themes relating to Black people and

indigenous peoples of the Americas into Neoclassical-style sculpture.

Hank Aaron

February 5, 1934 – January 22, 2021

MLB's Hammerin' Hank!  

HANK AARON 1a.jpg

A Great Gentleman . . .

On & Off the Field!

Must See Video

Video Courtesy, MLB

Watching Hank Aaron on tv. . . or listening to his

at bats on the radio was surely an exciting time

for "All Americans" - whether black, white or 

every color in between.  Hank's MLB fame &

unvarnished character remained

in tact on and off the MLB scene! 

In fact, the global "World of Baseball" 

loved "Hammerin' Hank!"
 

Hank Aaron broke many barriers which

served to divide and sow discord.

He stepped up-to-the-plate

sometimes taking insults

and racial slurs.  But his

at bats with his impeccable

character shattered MLB records

while  obliterating  racial  hatred  to

utter naught:  Why?  Because he knew

and cherished those things of value that

"Humanity Itselfnaturally taught! 

No doubt, Hank Aaron stood tall.  

He reminded America that racism

has no place in baseball:  In fact, he

"Bravely" showed the whole world that

racism has no acceptable or justifiable place at all!
