Sorry I haven’t been posting regularly, but life got very busy all of a sudden.  It’s a new season and with that comes new changes.  As you may have noticed I’ve changed the design theme for the blog.  I’m digging the green.  It’s such a great color for the spring.

I’m hitting the restart button on my regular posting by celebrating Black Music Month.  Stay tuned…

Tomorrow is the start of Black History Month.  For the record, I strongly believe that Black history is American history, and should be celebrated well beyond February.  That said, I would still like to highlight some historical facts that took place in the month of February.  It’s my goal to try to post at least 3 times a week this month, wheather it’s a movie review, book review, or just my thoughts on the people or happenings that contributed in some way to black culture.  Stay tuned!

Tomorrow is Martin Luther King’s birthday, and in honor of that I’ll be dedicating a few days to his life and legacy.  Stay tuned!

One of my action points for this year is community service.  What better way to start the year off right and continue Dr. King’s legacy of service than volunteering?  www.MLKday.gov and www.usaservice.org are excellent resources for finding opportunities in your area.

“Everyone can be great because everyone can serve.”
–Martin Luther King, Jr.

“When you chose to serve–whether it’s your nation, your community or simply your neighborhood–you are connected to that fundamental American ideal that we want life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness not just for ourselves, but for all Americans.  That’s why it’s called the American dream.”
–Barack Obama
