February is African-American History Month, and it is only fitting that I am writing this piece for a newspaper that serves the second-largest African-American population per capita income in the United States – DeKalb County, Ga.
Today, some African-Americans still appreciate the relevance of newspapers like CrossRoadsNews that inform and serve the community with necessary information to equip citizens to be more engaged in the growth and development.
However, many of us take the African-American media outlets for granted today. The Black Press has been a powerful tool in helping African-Americans liberate themselves from the bondage of systemic and institutional oppression, repression, and the brutality of a racist society.
The pen is one of the most powerful weapons to combat injustice. Even after wars are fought treaties must be written – to establish the social order. (CrossRoadsNews)
