Ice Cream, Grand Parents and Black History Month
When you are having a good conversation with Gram Ma or Pops, a bowl of ice cream will last for an hour.
The time that grandparents, spend with their Grand kids, is usually special. Long stretches during summer vacation and winter breaks, weekends and holidays.
These times present a perfect opportunity, to share knowledge and wisdom. I hope that all Grandparents will take some time this month to teach their young people something, during Black History Month.
Teach them something that you feel is important for them to know. Please teach them something other than the Icons of the 1950’s and 60’s civil rights struggle. It seems that if Black History is being taught in school at all, it stops right there.
My lesson to my young people this month is “The original Civil Rights Struggle”
Here a few names you might want t look up. Anthony Johnson, and John Casor 1655, John Punch a Slave, and William Grimes a slave.
If you would like to share this with your young people Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
