New BHM quotes up on the board

Hello again,
Congratulations Brandon Ruff! Brandon correctly attributed one of our Black History Month quotations yesterday!

"We should emphasize not Negro History, but the Negro in history. What we need is not a history of selected races or nations, but the history of the world void of national bias, race hate, and religious prejudice."

Correct answer: Carter Woodson, founder of Black History Month

"The shadow of a mighty Negro past flits through the tale of Ethiopia the shadowy and of the Egypt the Sphinx. Throughout history, the powers of single blacks flash here and there like falling stars, and die sometimes before the world has rightly gauged their brightness."

Correct answer: WEB DuBois

Just put the new quotes for our contest up on the board. These have blanks you have to fill in, plus you have to name the speaker for credit! Good luck! Remember, answers posted to the blog or the Facebook are not eligible. You must be the first student to the circulation desk with the correct answer to win. Good luck! Here are the quotes:

"Sometimes I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me _______. It merely _____ ___."

"I don't want a Black History Month. Black History is __________ _________________."
