A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Black Heritage Collection - An accurate history of America cannot be complete without the inclusion of and the recognition of the contributions made by black Americans. The struggle for actual equality in the "land of the free" has been a painfully slow process that has made tremendous strides over a period of hundreds of years, but is not yet over. Hard fought freedoms have required the sacrifice and suffering of virtually all black individuals in one way or another over the years. The struggle for true "equality" and true "freedom" is not yet over, it continues, day by day. If there was one event that seems to have catapulted the movement forward and galvanized the focus of both the black and white communities more than any other, it appears to have been the event that occurred in December of 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama. On that fateful day, a black seamstress by the name of Rosa Parks defied an order to give up her seat on a city bus to make room for a white passenger. A seemingly minor event that in actuality proved to be the spark that launched the black movement into a new and important shift forward. From that event, a protest was launched by the black community followed by a city-wide boycott of the bus line. It lasted a year, brought to attention the talents of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., riveted the eyes of the nation on the black cause, and resulted in desegregation on buses. It also sparked slow but steady progress in the quest for true equality. No contribution by any black American can ever be underestimated. Instead, an accurate picture of American history can only be obtained by acknowledging Black Heritage.
