It's all history

Black history is often said by white America it is in the past forget it. The ugly truth is it is still a part of America's history. I will never understand how a group of people could be so heartless and cruel. Black America never was happy with Jim Crow it's ignorance to say we were.

Personal stories that touch the heart

Tremendous personal reflections on the color divide era known as Jim Crow. For anyone who did not live through that era, these stories help put the current color divide in perspective.
