This week, the world lost one of the greatest humans that ever lived, Nelson Mandela. Unsurprisingly, there were lots of people online, young and old, who had no clue who he was. Black History Month is a joke in many schools around the country and Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, and Harriet Tubman are the only names that enter the curriculum.

Because Black History is American History."
