It's like a month or week for different things, events,
issues. People in government really have big roles
to play so they get these weeks and months
assigned for different situations.
That brings me to talk about the US Senator Blanche
LIncoln. He has informed people of a Senate
resolution. September 7, 2008 is now going to
be known as "National Historically Black Colleges
and Universities Week. Just like we have Black
History MOnth, it's not nearly enough.
Black History MOnth is all the time. National
Historically Black College and Universities
celebration should be all the time.
But since there is a National Historical Black
College and Universities Week, that's something.
LIncoln has been a co sponsor of this yearly
commemorative legislation for 2 years.
OUr nation's historically black college and
universities should receive applause for offering
students educational and job and other opportunities.
There are 103 total historically black colleges and
universities in America. HBCU's have a beautiful
and luxurious heritage and made the history of
America what it is. THe Senate calls on the people
of the United States and interested grops to observe
the HBCU week with ceremonies, activities, and programs
that support HBCU's in America.
See how powerful it is to be in the Senate? I hope
more of OUR BLACK people get into the senate and
start naming what they want just like that, as
quick as a snap.
