Gullah History is American History

While all Americans should be celebrating Black history every day, February is the month we pause to reflect on the contributions Black Americans have made to society.  People tend to recall activists such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and Harriet Tubman, as they rightly should, but we should also reflect on the contributions of local legends, such as South Carolina's own General Robert Smalls and educator and activist Mary McLeod Bethune.  Our home grown, living legends include Congressman James Clyburn, actor Chadwick Boseman, and singers Darius Rucker and Candice Glover.  While we focus on the many marks we leave in our every day interactions, remember that you are making history in your communities, and that Gullah History is Black History, and Black History is American History.

They are awe inspiring; not sad at all.
