It’s Black History and Creative Romance Month

Did you know that February along with being Black History Month was also the month for creative romance, weddings and An Affair to Remember! In honor of this wonderful mix of celebrations, I thought I’d share some of my favorite things about each over the course of the month.

Black History Month

arthur-hathorn-srWilliam Arthur Hathorn, Sr.  (1882 – 1962)

William Arthur Hathorn made no impact on national politics or the civil rights movement, made no gains in the advancement of medicine or engineering. He was a kind farmer, who worked the land purchased by his grandfather, and taught those willing to learn how to ‘read and figure’ His take on romance, marry someone a lot younger and have thirteen children.

He was also the first member of my direct Hathorn line (of African descent) to be born free in the US.

Even though I”m on hiatus until the end of the month, I’m still checking the site – so let me know the firsts in your family line!

Happy Reading Writing and Researching!
