Black history is far more complex than Miss Information had suspectedMiss Information has had a tough week. There is some suspicion that she dissed a much-loved cultural institution in an article she wrote for the library. This has caused no end of trauma. Then she struggled mightily for about 7 hours on a job that should have taken 7 minutes. Stupid technology.
Miss Information really needed a snow day--not that that's happening. In spite of snowpocalypse, the library is open.
The only bright spot this week has been a Black History display in the mall near the library. It has beautifully framed photos of famous and significant Black people. Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks are there. Jackie Robinson, Herb Carnegie, Michael Jordan are there. Tupac, Biggie and Bob Marley are there. Justin Bieber is there. Huh? What?
In fairness, it's a market stall rather than an official display, but it does have a big Black History Month sign and Justin is the only Caucasian featured.
