Your books are cooked, Mr. President. You never came close to improving the eco
By Gloria Dulan-Wilson • Every year some one of our politically savvy Black activist leaders will come up with question of whether or not we should be celebrating Thanksgiving. And this year is no different. That weird question reared its ugly head in the guise of a joke, and there was the nervous laughter to open guffaws around the room, which set me thinking:

In The Mis-Education of the Negro by Carter Godwin Woodson, it states, "If you can control a man's thinking, you don't have to worry about his actions.

ReedNow that Barack Obama is President of the United States, why don't we just pretend that America wasn't built on slaveholding?If the spate of recent "post-racial" articles suggesting that we need no longer commemorate the African American struggle for freedom and equality in this country is any indication, this seems to be where we're heading.This is a classic case of the phenomenon called selective history/memory, or as some have termed it, historical amnesia.We've been bomb
