Black History Month, Blue, February, Langston Hughes, Leyla McCalla, Music, Sarcasm, Stacey Dash, Too Blue
I’ve been thinking about what Stacy Dash said about black history month, and I think I agree with her. We shouldn’t have black history month. Let’s put getting rid of it on the agenda. We’ll do that immediately after we get black history a secure and solid place in the rest of the curriculum.
In the interim, here is Leyla McCalla putting an old Langston Hughes poem to music.
Think I’ll listen to it while I put together a lesson on the Harlem Renaissance.

Great point about integrating Black History into the curriculum. Meanwhile, love the song!
PS: On my blog, I just asked you if you’ve seen the Aurora. … then I noticed where you live. Needless to say, I laughed at myself.

Thanks for the video. It’s about time someone played a bass ukulele properly.
