Black History Month

BEGINNING FEBRUARY 1ST until FEBRUARY 28TH MANY WILL CELEBRATE BLACK HISTORY MONTH, INCLUDING SPEAK TO ALL.  THROUGH OUT THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY SPEAK TO ALL WILL POST KNOW FACTS ABOUT AFRICAN AMERICANS PAST, and PRESENT,  so ON THIS FIRST DAY WE WILL INFORM YOU OF THE HISTORY OF BLACK HISTORY MONTH. 

Black History Month had its beginnings in 1926 in the United States, when historian  CARTER  G WOODSON  announced the second week of February to be “Negro History Week”. This week was chosen because it marked the birthday of both  FREDERICK DOUGLASS and ABRAHAM LINCOLON.   CARTER G. WOODSON created the holiday with the hopes that it will eventually be eliminated when black history became fundamental to American history, which as we know today has not been the case.    Negro History Week was met with enthusiastic response; it prompted the creation of black history clubs, an increase in interest among teachers, and interest from progressive whites.

ANOTHER HARLEM ENTITY BITES THE DUST.

The Lenox Lounge, A long-standing jazz bar/lounge in Harlem, located on Lenox Avenue  between 124th and 125th streets, was founded in 1939 and has served as a venue for performances by many great jazz artists.  Unfortunately is slated to close on December 31st 2012.  Alvin Reed owner of the Lenox Lounge since 1988, restored the jazz club from what it once was to what it is now. The landlords have in-forced a rent hike which is forcing Mr. Reed out of the property. Mr. Reed  states that his rent is being raised to $20,000, double what he has been paying.

Due to this rent hike, on December 31st, 2012, when everyone is celebrating the new year and tossing out the old and bringing in the new.  This time tossing out the old will be a sad day for the Lenox Lounge.
