Come and Be Black for Me. A gentle but pointed personal essay on Black History month. "I am glad February is almost over. It's during this month that everyone is looking for me - or rather, anyone who can come and be black for them."

"I tell him that Alabama is my homeland."

This was a cute, poignant essay, and something with which my dear friend Shirley Kennedy, who died on MLK day this year, could completely empathize.

Thanks for the link, RJ.
