    Letters to the editor — Rethinking Black History Month

    I read the article “Rethinking Black History”. I am glad that I came across this article because I have been thinking this for years! 
    We don’t know much about Black History because we have only been taught a very small portion of it. 
    Black history did not start with slavery, and it did not end with the Civil Rights Movement. In fact, it goes back thousands of years. 
    Even though we were robbed of our culture and history, it is up to us to expand our knowledge of our history. 
    If we do not know our history, we do not know ourselves. If we don’t know ourselves, we will forever be lost.

    About the Contributor
    In the fall of 2019, The Laney Tower rebranded as The Citizen and launched a new website. These stories were ported over from the old Laney Tower website, but byline metadata was lost in the port. However, many of these stories credit the authors in the text of the story. Some articles may also suffer from formatting issues. Future archival efforts may fix these issues.
