This is the month when the accomplishments of black people are celebrated.

But until around 1980 the schools in Morristown Tennessee were still segregated.

That was shocking and it wasn't right.

To get to be treated as equals, black people had to fight.

It's such a horrible thing when people hate.

Now a black man is running for President and that's great.
