This month, I celebrate African American History.
I celebrate the African Americans who have given of their lives in building and rebuilding America and making her great.
I celebrate the significant contributions of African Americans to my spiritual development, teaching me and praying for me and giving me swift kicks to the rear end when needed. These women and men are a major part of my spiritual heritage.
And since it’s both African American History Month and Wisdom Week, I want to include some quotes from my favorite African American poet and a truly wise woman, Dr. Maya Angelou.
