I probably have the longest self-posts on here. Don't know why I do it. Here we go:It's that time again; to write a bunch of stuff many don't care about-but for those who do, this was written to show the struggles, the controversial figures, the achievements and the perseverance of a people from history to the present that is known by some but probably ignored, for many reasons, by most. Personally, when I was growing up it gave me a lot of hope and inspiration to see someone that looked like myself doing remarkable things in the world and expressing themselves in ways that related to me.Here's my history report from years ago with a few additions since the present is always making history. Maybe somebody might find it interesting. I wanted to include names and organizations that for the most part are rarely ever spoken of that contributed to the world and are contributing currently to the world. These are not people whose philosophies I agree or disagree with, but mores those who have had an effect on the present and in history that I recognize as pivotal. Just as we have had to learn, study and pass tests to learn about other races, I wanted to offer a small glimpse of Black History that I studied that was not part of school curriculum, yet directly influenced America and other countries in relevant ways. This is given with respect to all races and contributions, but for the purpose to highlight Black Achievements and Contributions to humankind through our heritage without trying to emphasize or support any ideas of separatism. I did not really make an order to this as far as numbers go, except to constantly show diversity in the individual's achievements or philosophies. And no, this is not a list I copied. It is a list of many people I admire (some very controversial and disliked by many and some more accepted in society) and some that I do not admire as much as recognize that they have had an impact. Much of it is from wikipedia, I know you ain't think I can write all this off the top of my head, but much of it is not --and, to even know who these people are is to remember them-and that is whatever. But, if I will do it, I will try to do it justice. Much of it is from other sources, most of it is my old report on this from my college days and some from pure memory to try and show the accomplishments in as brief and respectable a manner as I can from people I find worth mentioning as an american black male. I keep my opinions to a minimum. I do think this gives a better perspective of a race than what is provided currently through sports, musicians and movies and well…let me say it again-athletes, musicians and actors. Lemme get off the soap-box. If anyone's crazy enough to read all that's written, then you're better than me; I think somethings will be new even if old.
