If I may refer to you as Dr. Gates. The way I learned of the accomplishments of African American history was through all three resources as you described. More intense studies by the time I became a senior in high school by a wonderful scholar and professor in African American Studies. Upon graduation, the rest was left up to my post education, research and discussions with family and friends on many topics including civil rights. One of my favorite literature in my library is the “Miseducation of the Negro” by Carter G. Woodson. There are many others. I believe every home in the African American community should have a library/bookshelf filled with empowering non fiction materials and literature. Thank you for the opportunity to share this experience. God Bless…
