Interesting letter from a story

There was a relatively interesting story in the Saint Louis American last week. It was about the celebration of Black History Month at Hazelwood Central Middle School. It was in the Entertainment section.

What was even more interesting was the letter published in response from a Jerry Kirkwood from all the way out in Los Angeles. He went to Hazelwood School District in 1972. Funny how such a seemingly innocuous story can elicit such an eye-opening response. I remember when things were more like this. It hits pretty hard to how things have been for a long time. It is nice to see when we make some marked progress. Things have been changing a bit for the better after all. We still can and need to do so much more.
