FEBRUARY is Black History Month

We are facing many complicated problems in the arena of "race relations." From the issues raised by the Don Imus Controversy..to the degrading lyrics in Rap Music... to problems in the public schools--Black Americans continue to be seriously challenged.

READ MORE ABOUT THESE ISSUES
IN THE SUMMER 2007 issue of
"Fund & Edutain Guide"

** Read the article..."Keep It Real" by author Melvia Miller

KNOWLEDGE OF ROOTS HELPS US UNDERSTAND WHO WE ARE AND WHERE WE MUST GO...

Learning more about African American History can help elevate one's self-esteem and "race-esteem."

 OCCUPY EDUCATION !

Minority students will likely outnumber white students in the next decade or two, but the failure of the national teacher demographic to keep up with that trend is hurting minority students who tend to benefit from teachers with similar backgrounds.

Minority students make up more than 40 percent of the national public school population, while only 17 percent of the country's teachers are minorities, according to a report released this week by the Center for American Progress.

Using data from the 2008 Schools and Staffing Survey, the most recent data available, researchers found that more than 20 states have gaps of 25 percentage points or more between the diversity of their teachers and students.

California yielded the largest discrepancy of 43 percentage points, with 72 percent minority students compared with 29 percent minority teachers. Nevada and Illinois had the second and third largest gaps, of 41 and 35 percentage points, respectively.

In a second report, the CAP notes that in more than 40 percent of the nation's public schools, there are no minority teachers at all. The dearth of diversity in the teaching force could show that fewer minorities are interested in teaching or that there are fewer minorities qualified to teach.

ENTREPRENEURS CAN AND HAVE CHANGED THE COURSE OF HISTORY:

Since ancient civilizations in Africa --and up until modern times, Black people (aka: Negroes, African-Americans, Nubians, etc.) have contributed to the development of civilization via the creation and invention of millions of products, machines, and gadgets that have made life a lot easier.


In fact, Black Americans and their quest for Civil Rights:  freedom, justice and equality-- actually made this nation live up to its Constitution and creeds of "equality"---when White people wanted to practice "racial oppression."

Dr. Carter Woodson began the celebration of "Negro History Week" in 1925 for the purpose of honoring and acknowledging the true builders of the U.S.A.  Since then, people all across the U.S.A. observe BLACK HISTORY MONTH during February.

IF 'NEGRO' (Black African) PEOPLE HAD NEVER EXISTED...


  
 

WE WOULD NOT HAVE ANY OF THE FOLLOWING either---
* Egyptian Pyramids  ...* Herbal sciences... * Medicines made from peanuts....* The elevator.... * Player Piano ... * Helicopters... * Air Brakes...* Cell phones....* Gas masks...*Typewriters....* Printing Press * The traffic signal....* Shoe Stitching machine...* Cable cars ...* Indoor toilets...* Ironing board...* Air conditioners * Electric light bulb...* Rotary engines...* Blimps...* Holistic Healing (herbal medicines)... * Martial Arts (Judo, Karate, Yoga, etc.) ...* The ironing board. * Engine oiling mechanism...* Jazz, Blues, Rock & Roll, & Rap Music....and much more!

BLACK HISTORY MONTH benefits everyone.
 

However, it is focused on the struggles, achievements, contributions, and history

of African-Americans (Negroes, black people).
 

..just like when  you go to a "Chinese Restaurant"-
 

----you get Chinese food from their culture.
 

If you buy a CD of "latino music"--- no one expects it to

be "multi-cultural..." with works by Beethoven on it too.
 

Learn more when you read books by author Melvia Miller!

 

Each one -- teach one....
