Black Power…

I am sitting here watching Free Angela its the documentary of Angela Davis.. I am so touched by her as a strong, black, dedicated, very intelligent woman and not only that but the way that the black community came together as well as white America. I am sitting here in disbelief because do you know that I never heard of her in school before. I’ve heard the name Angela Davis but never knew the story behind her and that is a very sad, sad thing to have to acknowledge right now. And just think back in my day when Feb. came around we had Black History Month where we’d study a few black leaders..but after that no more lessons on our black history. So if we didn’t hear about Angela Davis in our school days Lord help us cause I know our kids don’t hear about enough of our great black people. I guess we have to teach our children ourselves about their history and the people who fought so hard for us there is more to the names then Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and the names that we here all the time. We got to go deeper with our children as well as ourselves. What a beautiful intelligent committed woman. I’m glad she was freed..
