Listen everyone, I know it has been tremendously difficult putting up with me posting so much but as I have said to two others, this is really not a blog, and I’m not a blogger, more of a historian.
I came up with the idea of starting this never-ending project after realizing through perception that so many young African Americans haven’t a sense of heritage only because it has been stripped from them. This is my attempt to get part of it back for them, and help the students, teachers and parents teach their children about all the amazing people who have come before them setting and paving the way for a world they wanted for themselves, a world which was not much to ask for, yet a world impossibly out of reach.
It covers every era from the Revolutionary War, Slavery, post slaver, etc. it then goes on to cover the amazing entertainers of ragtime, blues/jazz, and then onto motown and r&b. Most of all, it features all the entertainers themselves along with all the hollywood entertainers. It features every African American Politician who ever served office and it portrays every fortune 500 executive. It features the most powerful African American women in the world, and much much more.
Bear with me please as I get this project ready for the website,, and I do hope you all follow me, this was the most enriching experience of my life. I never knew how wealthy people could be and I have been reading AA History since I was seven years old, but it’s a whole different ballgame when you are putting the pieces of the puzzle together.
