I wanted to thank you brothers and sisters for your newspaper. I really enjoyed February’s edition celebrating Black History month. I think about the untold facts of African-Americans’ scientific contributions to humanity. Communicating a culture’s achievements is a good thing, but only recounting a small portion of the story perpetuates psychological hinderance when it comes to self-identity. There’s a lot of negativity, we African-Americans had to overcome in the past, and the last thing we need is to reflect on a past that’s bad luck. Not to mention it’s long past time for us to stop begging for recognition.
