AFRICAN-AMERICAN EDITORIALS

I became interested in African-American history some years ago while participating in a Black History Month initiative.  What I discovered is that there is a lot of emphasis on black history beginning with the civil rights movement in the 1960's, but very little on how African-Americans influenced the future of the United States, even before the slaves were freed.  I have written, and will continue to write editorials about the black influence on the founding of this country.  The ones I have already completed, are listed below.
