Black history- My favorite topic. There should be more than one black history
class at every college, high school, middle school, elementary school because black
people contributed alot. Not everybody will self teach themselves. But I thank God
for the internet and books on black history because it should NOT be shadowed.
IT should be put into the spotlight and highlighted and showcased over
and over and over again.
