African Americans were forced out of towns in three counties 100 years ago. When their descendents returned to the area, the history they learned was shocking. This show airs February 19th at 10pm EST.
African Lives 2

PBS will celebrate Black History Month with kids each Friday throughout February. PBS Kids Go will air segments of interesting and informative facts about African Americans and their contributions to society.
Kids can also play interactive games to learn more about black history on African American World on the PBS website. There are also other activities and games based on black history on the website.
If you watch these shows or learn of any others, I would love hearing about them. I enjoy learning about black history and the triumphs and achievements of black Americans and Canadians.
Griffyn was sick with the croup and he has just cut two teeth. A lethal combination for Mom. Here he is just too tired to eat. If you notice, his cheeks are beet red.
Feeling much better now, but has a cold and so does Mom. At least he is entertaining himself for short periods. He loves any new adventure.
The photos below were taken at Christmas. He was almost 6 months old. Here he is eating a Christmas cookie.
Mom and Dad were so proud that he wasn't afraid of Santa. Wait until next year. He'll be a year and a half and will probably scream.
Hope you enjoyed these photos. I just got them tonight. I don't see Griffyn very often, as he lives out of town. Aren't babies just the most precious blessings in the world? I wish I could see him more often.
Take care and please do a kind deed for someone today. Kindness brings hope. ~Blessings, Mary~
