During Black History Month, learn about everyday American heroes who fought against inequality. Here’s a great list of books for your child.

Black History Month: #7 Learn about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with these kid-friendly videos.

At six years old, Ruby Bridges was the first black child to attend a formerly all-white New Orleans School. Ruby shows that at any age, you can be a role model for courage, forgiveness, and doing what’s right!

Learn about the first Black American to become a bomber pilot: Les Williams. He is also one of the few surviving Tuskegee Airmen.

For the first time I can kind of relate to those crazy Fox News pundits who sound the alarm about the supposed “War of Christmas!!!!”.

Early this morning I found myself searching Twitter (#MLKDay #ThankYouMLK) to see how people are celebrating our great American hero, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. All over the country, folks are tweeting MLK quotes, and sharing ideas about how to carry on Dr. King’s legacy. Unfortunately, there are an almost equal amount of “Yay, no school/work! Thank you MLK!” tweets as well.

My response: sideways unhappy face :(
