THE HISTORY MEANING - https://mytruesense.blog/2015/11/02/the-history-and-meaning-behind-black-solidarity-day/
And BSD is more 50 years old...it continues to mean a lot to the Black Community!
The first Monday in November has been sacred to me as a young black child growing up in the 60's and 70's. Its awareness became less and less pronounced and announced in many communities and families, but I remembered. Then on various Social Networks I see this - NATIONAL BLACKOUT DAY 2020 aka #BLACKOUTDAY2020!!!
#BLACKOUTDAY2020. – Calvin Martyr
What I like about this young man:
* His passion
* His concepts
* His presence
What gives me the Screw face:
*He never says his Name though he has Media with his name on it.
*Is he a one man band? He dogged the "So-Called" Black Leaders...!!!
BTW- when Qurantine time hit the US, THAT stopped and cost the nation. At this time in the World, what business (Multicultural) can truly afford to NOT make any more money coming out of the July 4th weekend???? Why not during Christmas? NYE?
I will keep a side-eye to this and pray it's a movement and not a RE-movement.
My Name is Ben Green and #BLACKOUTDAY2020, is Where I've BEN!!
