    Thank you, Yale, but please, let us stop calling it African-American History and integrate it as the inclusion of some heretofore unacknowledged, unrecognized, and/or untaught aspects of American Life and Culture. To wit: Seminar on the Roles of Those of African Descent in American History and in the Development of American Culture. I hope that Carter G.Woodson is smiling.
