Black History


Greg Gainer

Here are some Black History links that I have found on the Web.

The Original Black Fax Calendar for 1997---Calendar that includes twelve African proverbs from different regions. There are 365 sucessful black men and women listed, and includes are their occupations/profesions, birth places and birth years. Each individual is listed on the day of his/her birth. There are 365 categorized questions and answers: Sunday - Religion; Monday - All about black inventors; Tuesday - The Carbbean; Wednesday - The Military; Thursday - Pure Trivia; Friday - Potpourri fill-ins; and Saturday - The Arts.
