In celebration of Black History Month, Southern Cultures permanently has dedicated a new section of their website to all the essays and features they have from the last decade on AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY AND CULTURE. This material includes interviews with many famous figures (and lesser known ones, too), as well as material which explores many aspects of the experiences of African Americans inside and outside the South. In addition, they’ve also been presenting featured content on their homepage to commemorate African American history: an essay from Timothy B. Tyson, author of Blood Done Sign My Name, who reveals why Martin Luther King’s message endures and what he means to the South and the nation.
To date, over 65,000 readers have viewed their material online. Click below to read from this newly added section on AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY AND CULTURE
