Black American History.

I’ve been out of public school for 35 years and in my day we didn’t have all the “Black History” month, and “Global warming” month etc. I was wondering if the younger participants here might help me with a question. In February when you celebrated Black History Month did they bring up any of these people:

William Nell

James Armistead (Lafayette)

Jordan Freeman

Lambo (Lambert) Latham

Peter Salem

Prince Whipple

Lemuel Haynes

Thanks!

    William Nell. I think I’ve heard that name before but I’m not sure it was at school.

    Other than that, no. None of them.

    That is sad, isn’t it Katie? Those are names of black men who helped found our great nation. I wonder why they leave those names out of schools’ Black History Month? They used to teach about them from coast to coast.

    Check out some of their history here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1143890/posts
