cartergwoodson__web.jpgBlack History Month: February 2014

To commemorate and celebrate the contributions to our nation made by people of African descent, American historian Carter G. Woodson established Black History Week. The first celebration occurred on Feb. 12, 1926. For many years, the second week of February was set aside for this celebration to coincide with the birthdays of abolitionist/editor Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. In 1976, as part of the nation’s bicentennial, the week was expanded into Black History Month. Each year, US presidents proclaim February as National African-American History Month.

Here Come de Honey Man.’ He wasn’t really reading anything out of the bill, which presented a collection of faded Broadway pictures and credits. It was just his way of remembering what he used to do.

frederick_williams_web.jpgAfter writing three works of fiction, anchored in contemporary themes, it was time to for me to write a novel that placed great emphasis on the many African-American accomplishments that occurred early in our history.  Moreover, I have become saddened by the way our achievements fly under an undetected radar as if irrelevant, nonexistent and not properly recorded. Therefore, with great pride and an overwhelming desire I decided to get the ball rolling and pen Fires of Greenwood: The Tulsa Riots of 1921.
