Unless we forget, Black History Month started Feb. 1 and was more than half way through before Richmond Hill gave any official acknowledgement or concern about it.
When this month is overlooked by the city, it says to the proud heritage of black people in this city, that still live here and the ones that help build and were the foundation of this city, that they can be looked over too.
Remember this, “If a race has no history, if it has no worthwhile tradition, it becomes a negligible factor in the thought of the world, and it stands in danger of being exterminated,” by Carter G. Woodson, known as the father of black history.
