Febuary Is Black History Month Issue Date: 02-09-1997

Cool Spots imageThe history of Africans and African Americans has been ignored by Europeans and Americans of European descent for hundreds of years. "Over the past 5,000 years," a Columbia University professor once said, "the history of black Africa is blank." To counter this, a Harvard scholar and African American, Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson, founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History. In 1926 the organization succeeded in establishing a "Negro History Week." In 1976, the celebration was be renamed and extended into "Black History Month." At www.kn.pacbell.com/wired/BHM you can learn about slavery, African American leaders, and read poetry by Maya Angelou and Rita Dove. This Web site is full of challenges, too. Try this one: After reading the lyrics to "Buffalo Soldier" by Bob Marley, consider how this modern "Dreadlock Rasta" is similar to the "Buffalo Soldiers" of the 9th Cavalry and 54th Volunteer Infantry.
