We're celebrating 2011 Black History Month by holding the 2011Black History Month Blog Carnival and blogging about Black History, Folks and Current News. We believe that everyone should know as much as we know about the contribution Blackfolks have made to world history.
The other night we were watching a South African movie on the Africa Channel and saw a commercial for the contest to win a trip to Senegal.
WOW. Yeah WOW..
We thought that it should be shouted from the rooftops for all African Lovers to hear about. we need to promote African interests and events more widely - if we want to see more of them.
