It’s February and it is Black History Month. What inspires you? I think of Black literary pioneers like Nella Larsen, Alice Dunbar, and Zora Neale Hurston. Playwright Lorraine Hansberry has always been an inspiration to me. In any creative field there are so many Black people who made strides, but many have yet to get their due. Paul Robeson was a renaissance man. He was an actor, activist, athlete and much more.
Anyway here’s are some great reads I found on the web this week.
