Happy Black History Month! 
Celebrating Black Past, Present and Beyond.
"The Present state of affairs can be understood only by studying the forces effective in the development of [Black] education...To point out merely the defects as they appear today will be of little benefit to the present and future generations...The conditions of today have been determined by what has taken place in the past..."   Carter G Woodson (Founder of Black History Week, precursor to Black History Month)
