Tuesdays Teach Them This……..African American History Month: Janet Emerson Bashen

This month is African American History month. The month of February. 🙂

Like me, many of you have no clue about a lot of African American History. These historical facts just aren’t taught in schools nor so much in homeschool as a history subject to earn a credit for, save African American families. Normally many AA families will spend the month of February researching, teaching and having their children write reports about famous AA men or women in which they otherwise would know nothing about.

This month, my goal is to shine some light …OK…. A LOT OF LIGHT, on these unknown heroes, businessmen,  inventors, pave makers, who have done amazing things within the African American race and for collective history as a whole.
