What Leslie Jones was saying on SNL last week really hit home with me. Just like her, the things I remember learning in school during Black History Month didn't go much beyond "I have a dream" and George Washington Carver. Why didn't we learn about the AMAZING women that the movie Hidden Figures is based on? Regardless of race, as a female who wasn't super into math, this could have been incredibly encouraging to me.
Last year, the NY Times published an interactive "Unpublished Black History" of never before seen photos from different moments in black history. It's a fascinating. Check it out.
