In Lakeland, Florida, where my mom spends her winters, is a Goodwill Outlet store she and her friends call the Dumpster.
I’ve been there a couple of times with her, more for the entertainment value than anything, although I did score a nice long-sleeved shirt for my husband and a grey wool skirt and a lavender pashmina for me the last time I went.
We are in February, the month to honor those who have paved the way for us to be where we are today.
It is Black History Month. So people wonder why there needs to be a Black History Month, just as some wonder why we need affirmative action. I really believe if these issues were not put into law, they would have never materialized on their own merit.
