Beyond Martin and Rosa

How many Black History Month events have you experienced or even planned (don't be ashamed), where no matter what you expected, it still boiled down to a Civil Rights discussion that centered around Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks?  This infuriates me, not only because there's more to my culture than these things, but because for many people, it's what we've come to expect and we don't make much fuss about it.

Well this year, I wanted to combat that complacency.  Here are a few of the brainstorms I had while planning Black History Month activities this year.   If you use any of them, stop by and let me know!  I'd love to hear how it worked out.
