    1. You are welcome. I appreciate you reading and commenting As I research and study, I discover the unknown/hidden Black History and am so amazed. I wanted to do everyone individually but running out of GB for images. However, I will be posting websites for inventors, all politicians, judges, etc. Have a great day/night and blessings to you.

  2. Tangie, I appreciate you for the “black history” information which has allowed me to have daily conversations with my teenage granddaughter and husband who is also a military veteran and supports your blog. 💯 blessings 🙌🏽!

    1. Hi Pam, you are welcome, and I appreciate you reading, commenting and sharing. My intention was to share from all states, but I am running out of GB for images. However, I will share in a post the link to see all congressmen, congresswomen, senators, judges, etc., Barack Obama and Kamala Harris are posting individually later this week. Enjoy the rest of your day.
