Today is February 1, 2012 and it starts the beginning of Black History Month!
Because my blog deals with very specific content, I decided to focus on that type of content when highlighting people who I think that you should know from black history in general. Some will be famous. Some will be alive, and some will have passed on. I hope that you enjoy this month’s reflection.
Although she was mostly known for her great and controversial works of poetry, Wheatley was also employed as a seamstress until the day that she passed away.
Since, I fancy myself a growing seamstress, I figured we’d start this month out to a profession that I have grown to respect, admire, and love.
Other seamstresses include, but are not limited to:
Ms. Diana Ross – yes THAT Diana Ross – she studied design in hopes of becoming a famous fashion designer.
Hopefully, you’ve enjoyed this little look into black history. See you tomorrow!
