On Wednesday, Jan. 20th actress turned right wing political commentator Stacey Dash appeared on Fox News where she made some very uninformed, disparaging comments about Black History Month now called African American History Month, BET (Black Entertainment Television) which she has appeared on multiple times on “The Game” which was one of their highest rated TV Shows, and the NAACP Awards etc. Here’s what she said:
“We have to make up our minds. Either we want to have segregation or integration. If we don’t want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the [NAACP] Image Awards, where you’re only awarded if you’re black,” Dash said during the conversation.”, as reported by TheGrio.com
Read my article, “Civil Rights Icons Discuss Malcolm X And Explain The Real Fight Was For Desegregation Not Integration”, because the real fight was for “Desegregation” NOT “Integration” but Stacey Dash is “clueless” to this fact because she obviously doesn’t study history especially African American History.
On her Facebook Page she went on to add insult to injury by posting the video of the 2006 interview that Mike Wallace did with actor Morgan Freeman where he famously said, “I don’t want a Black History Month. Black History is American History”. He asked Mike Wallace “you’re going to relegate my history to a month”. I do a presentation called “Should African Americans Celebrate Black History Month: Exposing The Myths” where I shows this video clip to the audience and get their feedback. About half of the audience will agree with Morgan Freeman until I totally destroy and refute his uninformed, disrespectful comments with facts and evidence that most people don’t know.
Who Was Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson?
What we today call African American History Month started in 1926 as Negro History Week created by Dr. Carter G. Woodson. He is known as “The Father of Black History Month” and “The Father of Black History”. He is credited with laying the foundation for the widespread adoption of Black Studies in American Colleges. He was also a co-founder of the Association for the study of Negro Life & History today known as The Association For the Study of African American Life and History (ASAALH). He was a scholar, historian, author, book publisher, college professor, educator and lecturer. Isn’t it ironic that his most well known book is “The Mis-Education of The Negro” in 1933. To understand African American History Month we must first understand Dr. Carter G. Woodson.
