As I was looking up moments in Black History to research for Black History Month, I came across a period in time right after the Civil War called the Opelousas Riots. Now this intrigued me because we are getting ready to elect a new president whether Democrat or Republican. Did you know that originally in the South the Democratic party would not allow freed AfricanAmericans to join and members were mostly white supremacists? Crazy right! Today the Democratic Party is predominantly black and the Republican Party has the lead with the majority white.
This morning on the Wake Up Club we discussed a whole lot lol.. From the adventures of Sight & Talent, Geva Theatre’s production of To Kill A Mockingbird, to Dam Daniel. Just in case you missed it or want to enjoy the moment again we’ve posted them all right here.
So have you ever heard of Dam Daniel?? Bet your kids have and its hilarious!
