Getting Rooted

It is often said that a tree without roots, does not grow and so is the same for a people who do not know – correction – do not accept and understand their history… and in turn, themselves.

Therefore when it was first announced that there would a Smithsonian Museum dedicated to African American history and culture I was beyond excited. I was even more ecstatic when then President Obama finally declared the museum open this past September. Hence it should come as no surprise that the hubby and I made our way back to the Capitol to partake in this piece of history.

Because of Them…

This month’s posts have taken a different direction and are geared towards highlighting important issues during Women’s History Month. This week I decided to shine the spotlight on some wonderful women I know who are making history in their own right.

But none of this would be possible without the actions of the history makers who came before.
