SASA'S LOUNGE 924 COLUMBUS AVE, BET 105&106 ST Black History is a month long ceremony in February that examines and celebrates the lives and various achievements made by our kinfolk… past and present. It was started by Carter G. Woodson as an effort to bring to light th...e often-neglected accomplishments made by Blacks. Our ancestors have fought long and hard before achieving the proverbial Civil Rights honor and although Blacks have had disproportionately less access, opportunities and freedoms in comparison to Whites, most Black folks were connected through their pursuit of happiness and by the color of their skin. During those times, Black people showed a lot of strength, commonality, unity and pride. They coined a saying like “Black is Beautiful” and they were unmistakably considered a Negro because they had that shaded skin color (unless they were passing)… However, things have changed. …In recent times, debates have surfaced as to whether or not Black History month is even relevant; and the irony with that thinking stems from the fact that some of the people asking that very question are Black folk! Go figure. That stirred me but the truth is, every once in a while we need to be reminded that... BLACK IS STILL BEAUTIFUL! This week Saturday 2/25/12, join us at Sasa’s Lounge, as Dj Nessdigital takes you on a special trip. Expect to hear the grooviest songs that honors our heroes for Black History month.
