Through my quest to understand my heritage, I am studying Black History with TV One this year. It seems to be the most intelligent option as I am stuck in my cabin suffering from the skyrocketing temperatures induced by being trapped. I don't have access to the African American Heritage Museum to learn more about the inner workings of my culture, or the library to check out a VHS copy of Eyes On The Prize.
