This is Black History Month. I believe everyday and every month should be about Black History. I am going to share a little common Black History about two Black Men you know, but don’t their Black History. Even though there is a age gap, they similar Black History. Let’s look at their similar History.

As you know about it is a tough road when you are the First of anything. Here is the Real Black History Story.
Willie Hector, Jr. Was the First Black Varsity Head Football Coach in Marin County at Tamalpais High School in 1965.
