Good reminder, Roy!  I've been watching a PBS documentary that has revealed parts of black history that I never knew.  Very interesting.  It's titled, "Many Rivers to Cross" with Henry Louis Gates.

So thoughtful of you, Roy, to remind people of important upcoming memorable days.  And even though I live in Orlando, today is the second day of pleasant weather, but a bit of a gloomy day...love the flowers, as always ~
