What was a citizen’s council?

Over the years, people have questioned why Rememberinghistory.com does what it does: teach and honor African American history. We teach about people, events and problems that—sadly—schools fail to teach and that standard history books—again, sadly–fail to include. But our mission at rememberinghistory.com is to keep history alive and to keep learning from history. And we […]

How to be inspired by history, Part I

Last April, I posted a blog that discussed why I love history. (It was called “What Inspires Me” if you want to read it again.) Unequivocally, I answered that history inspires me. I love the stories, the people, the intrigue, struggles and the triumph. They all inspire me. History shows me that nothing happens in […]

How the new “James Bond” will challenge us

I love James Bond! I always have and probably always will. I was enamored with the sexy and debonair bond since Sean Connery up to (and definitely) including Daniel Craig. (Yes, I did lose a bit of interest during the short-lived Timothy Dalton-as-Bond years but everyone has a fault.) I recently heard that another and […]

Still, it might not have been obvious that a new age was emerging. People knew that things were happening but they might not have realized that things […]

The third step on the Road with King: Does integration really exist in America?

Continuing down the road taken by Dr. Martin Luther King, I am driven by the need to delve into the ethical foundations of my beliefs. I have been reading more of King’s speeches (no pun intended) and I have discovered that he broke down the issues and presented them to the protesters. Back then, the […]
