I know we're given the month of February to celebrate our blackness and the contributions of great African-Americans in America, so forgive me for bringing up my people in July.
Too often I think we mention the contributions of people like Alice Walker, Lorraine Hansberry, Rev. James Cleveland and others but fail to mention their lives as same gender loving people. We have made a significant contribution to the world in many areas such as the arts, politics, and religion.
I came across a Black List that included the names of many SGL black people who's entire story has been left out of the pages of many black history books.
It's an interesting list, check it out and revel in knowing how different the world would be without the contributions of so many SGL people.
