A non-African-American co-worker brought this to my attention because she thought it was inappropriate (ad pictured above). I always wondered if it was just me...but now I know there's at least one other person who shares my sentiments regarding ads that promote STEREOTYPICAL FOOD ITEMS for sale during Black History Month.
This year marks the 38th anniversary that we have been celebrating Black History Month. But as we give profiles, facts and quizzes on prominent men and women of color who have collectively shaped America as we know it today, how much of what we absorb actually help us to gather some sense of identity and belonging amongst ourselves, the community and the world to make it a better place for us all?
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the famous Birmingham Civil Rights movement, where Martin Luther King Jr. -- one of the movement's defining figures -- penned his highly regarded 'Letter from Birmingham Jail.' The BBVA Compass Concert for Human Rights will be held in Birmingham to help commemorate the event, and the star-studded concert will be hosted by Jamie Foxx.
