Black History Month

See It

You know what Black History Month means, lots of tv specials: 2012 TV schedule
Have you never seen an Oscar Micheaux film or more than a clip of Josephine Baker? Check out Turner Classic Movies.

Support It

If you know of a current archival project dedicated to preserving black history, do consider donating some money or time to the cause. Here is one of the projects I support.

The Untitled Black Lesbian Elder Project (UBLEP) – a feature-length documentary that will highlight interviews with black lesbian elders in their 60s, 70s and 80s from across the United States and situate them in a range of black historical movements, spanning the decades between the 1930s and 1980s. Here is a video describing the project from their 2011 fundraising campaign.
