Polite On Society To Host Blog Carnival with Blogging While Brown for Black History Month 2014!

Good evening again folks. I figure while I have WordPress open, I may as well dish out the updates back to back. As many of you know about me as readers, I am a student of history. I at times have to remember that not everyone shares that passion. For those that do, I have some good news for you. I have been selected to lead Blogging While Brown’s Blog Carnival for Black History Month 2014. Now you may ask, how does this involve you? The purpose of the carnival, is to showcase different bloggers around a united theme.

If you are interested in blogging about Black history, here is your opportunity. For this collection, we are looking for some of the submissions to be Black historical figures and events that aren’t as well explored as more well known figures (think Shirley Chisholm, Countee Cullen, Melvin B. Tolson, etc) or items that go beyond the time frame of the civil rights movement (Black Wall Street, Harlem Hellfighters, African Blood Brotherhood, etc) We are looking for ten submissions(one piece per writer), and they can be pieces from the past as well.

I will be accepted the submissions, starting now. The publish date will be February 7th, 2014.  The deadline for all submissions is January 15th. Email  all questions to marc.w.polite@gmail.com
