NEW ORLEANS - Thursday was the last day of black history month, a time our society has set aside to honor the contributions of African Americans to the building of this country.
While we often focus on national leaders, we can't overlook the important role African American families have played in that history.
It's the real life stories, such as the one told on the pages of the new book, "What Love Can Do," that brings that aspect of black history to life.
Gayle Nolan was in the studio with more on the book and the fascinating story of how it got published.
You can meet Nolan and hear more about her "What Love Can Do" at her book signing on Saturday from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. at the Garden District Book Shop.
