Each year The Chess Drum posts reflections for Black History Month. This year a video was produced with some reflections and contemporary topics. This has already been an interesting year with the release of “Black Panther” and its prospects for honors at the Oscars. It was apropos that the movie was released in February which is a month we use to intimately reflect on the success of people of the African Diaspora. That remains the mission of The Chess Drum.
The segment below is about 28 minutes long with latest Drum news, Black History nuggets and also has a trivia contest included! You’ll have to play the video to get the question and the answer. Check it out!
