AFRICAN AMERICAN CULTURAL HERITAGE MONTH
The answer to yesterday's Black History question is....
Carter G. Woodson
Carter G. Woodson believed that blacks should know their past in order to participate intelligently in the affairs of our country. He strongly believed that Black history is a firm foundation for young black Americans to build on in order to become productive citizens of our society. His message was that Blacks should be proud of their heritage and that other Americans should also understand it.

And now for the February 2nd question:

Who was the first Black American to win the Nobel Peace Prize in 1950 for helping to end the first Arab-Israeli War?
A. Guion Bluford
B. General Benjamin O. Davis
