As I look around, I see Black History everywhere. I see it when I take a seat on the bus (in the front, of course). I see it when I eat in a restaurant (not a colored sign to be found). I see it when I look at my college diploma. I see it when I cast my vote on Election Day. I see it when I look at pictures of those who paved the way before me. I think of the Memphis Sanitation Strike of 1968, where the workers on protest held I AM A MAN signs. Something so simple, but poignant to remember!!!! We are men and women that matter in this world!!!! BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, WE ARE MEN AND WOMEN IN CHRIST JESUS!!!! Never overlook the history that surrounds you!!!!
