Black History Month

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history.

In 1915 after the 13th amendment abolished slavery in the U.S Harvard-trained historian Carter G. Woodson and minister Jesse E. Moorland founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH), an organization dedicated to researching and promoting achievements by Black Americans and other peoples of African descent.

As we are approaching the end of what society considers ‘Black History Month” – black history should always be celebrated and recognized all 12 months of the year.

It’s important to recognize, appreciate and show gratitude to those who came before us and the sacrifices made.

Below are some links to different articles you can read to further the discussion of black history and what it really means. – I encourage you to do your own research too.
