Been watching the local paper for some good Black History Month stuff. Terribly disappointed. The best was a great full page quiz, but it turned out to be from an advertiser. Not available to link.
Today looked promising. A wonderful link to Info Please.
Until I scanned the entire site and never found my personal hero and saint at all.
No matter. Let's go to the common blogger's OED.
Ah, yes. Wikipedia's got the goods.
And if you type John W. Jones, Elmira, New York into Google, you get a whole day's tribute to him.
Happy Black History Month.
