Can You Raise the Bar on Black History Month?
Dear Afrigeneas Family:
This is Black History Month 2003.
Yes, yes, I know. I can hear your collective sigh, see you rolling your eyes and muttering "not that rehash again". Come on, you can take it! Brace yourself for an exhausting round of "multi-cultural" "inclusionary" events. It's not so bad. Remember this is the Only Month when you'll be invited "to la di da" soirees at museums, cultural centers, corporate receptions, and NPR-ish "dialogue" forums. (Except for year round exclusive screenings of gansta movies and "gripping" down-'n-out-in-the-ghetto/cotton-field documentaries).
Take heart and read on:
