February, 15-28, 2018 The Celebrating Famous Ancestral Black Authors: Part 2

I hope that you enjoyed and will continue to share Days 1-14 of The Black Blogger’s Celebration of the BLACK MASTER AUTHORS. I will be reading the following excerpts beginning February 15, 2018, and running until February 28, 2018. The recorded video excerpts will appear each morning on my blog as part of The Black Blogger’s celebration of Black History Month. In 2017 I celebrated famous black poets during the entire month of February.  So I decided to go this route in 2018. Please remember this will not interfere with my Sunday through Friday evening sessions of “The Blackman Read Aloud Hour” sessions on Facebook Live.
