On this day of Black History Month after the horrible performance Fergie had at last night's All Star Game, we had to honor the great Marvin Gaye for his 1983 NBA All-Star Game rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" which is arguably one of the greatest performances along with Jimmi Hendrix and Whiteney Houston.
On this day of Black History Month we honor Mr. George Washington Henderson, the first African American to be inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. The irony of him becoming a member of Phi Beta Kappa is that he was deemed illiterate as a teenager. In 1877 he graduated from the University of Vermont first in his class and was inducted into the school’s Phi Beta Kappa chapter. Henderson then earned a master’s of arts degree from the University of Vermont, a bachelor’s degree of divinity from Yale University.
In 1890 he became chair of the theology department at Straight University (now Dillard). In 1904 he moved again to become dean of theology at Fisk University and ge stayed there for five years before moving to Xenia, Ohio as professor of Latin, Greek, and ancient literature at Wilberforce University. Then in 1932, he retired at the age of 82.

As today is the NBA All Star game, on this day of Black History Month we honor the black player to play in the NBA All Star game, Mr. Donald Argee Barksdale. Not only was he 1st black player to play in the NBA All Star game, he was the first to be named NCAA All-American, and the first to play on a United States Men's Olympic basketball team. In 2012 he was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
On this day of Black History Month we honor the man whose writing is the inspiration for Marvel's movie Black Panther, Mr. Christopher Priest / James Christopher Owsley. Priest is the first black writer to work full time at either Marvel or DC, starting with his first regular writing gig back in 1983.
His run on Black Panther now merits its own multivolume reprint, Black Panther by Christopher Priest: The Complete Collection. He has reentered the spotlight, returning to Marvel and as well as taking on DC’s flagship team-up series, Justice League.
On this day of Black History Month we say "Happy Birthday" to Dr. Huey Percy Newton (February 17, 1942 – August 22, 1989). Dr. Newton, a prominent member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc Beta Tau chapter was a political activist and revolutionary who, along with Bobby Seale, co-founded the Black Panther Party in 1966. He earned his Ph.D. in social philosophy.
As a student at Merritt College in Oakland, Newton became involved in politics in the Bay Area. He joined the Afro-American Association (AAA), became a member of Phi Beta Sigma (Beta Tau chapter) and played a role in getting the first African-American history course adopted as part of the college's curriculum. During his time at Merritt College, he met Bobby Seale, and the two organized the Black Panther Party for Self Defense in October of 1966.
