This is such a great way to spread knowledge about African American History Month...everyone loves a giveaway! There is a lot of information out there, especially with our new president - this is the time to learn and celebrate this history!

Gilbert King is writing a book about a young Thurgood Marshall, and he made a short video about how Barack Obama is standing on Thurgood Marshall's shoulders. If you want, you can view it here: and check out what else King has to say about Black history and our president.
