February is long gone, but Black History lives on.
Life is too short for any man to hold bitterness in his heart–Marshall Taylor
From the Wiki: Marshall Walter “Major” Taylor (26 November 1878 – 21 June 1932) was an American cyclist who won the world 1 mile (1.6 km) track cycling championship in 1899 after setting numerous world records and overcoming racial discrimination. Taylor was the first African-American athlete to achieve the level of world champion and only the second black man to win a world championship—after Canadian boxer George Dixon
The black cyclist clubs today are called Major Taylor!

I sincerely hope that if students are lurking on this blog, they are benefiting from the rich history of African Americans. Major Taylor was a not only a sports GIANT, he was a magnificant gracious, and intelligent human being.
