In this month of February known as Black History month, it is somewhat hard to understand why the shortest month of the year is known for black history.

I know that down through the years blacks have made great strides in history.

Like Jackie Robinson the first black in major league baseball, Wilt Chamberlain the only player in history to score 100 points in a game. Even in slavery blacks have made history in sports, science, religion, education and all walks of life. It didn't just start yesterday.

As a black man, I am so proud of the accomplishments we have made.
