Black History

Black Sovereign University | Black History 101

Welcome to the BSU presentation of Black History 101.  I am a big believer in the importance of acknowledging African-American history and achievements every day.


We pay homage those who are here now and who came before that paved the way for all of us to enjoy the freedoms they struggled, suffered and/or died for.  Black History Month is meant to be a reminder to acknowledge the American Black People for all they have done to build this country.  However, Black History is something that requires reverence more than the 28 or 29 days out of the year.
