This is a wonderful exhibit to have for Black History Month. There is so much of Black history that has been hidden, buried and ignored. I'm so glad there's such a thing as Black History Month. Now we all can be educated on many of the stories of black progress that at one time were left out of the 'American History' books. I really don't think you'll find much black history published in the school text books until after the 1980's - if then.
