Today is the last day of Black History Month. As you know, I'm not a huge fan of the concept, but I heard this story today on NPR'sTell Me More about a new book, The Dark End of the Street, documenting the pattern of sexual assault against Black women during the Civil Rights Movement. I was so disgusted and horrified I knew I needed to write about it here. Please listen to the story and get angry. And then shed some tears and then tell me, what do we do with this knowledge?
Happy Black History Month.
