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.
So honored i was able to read for @ReadingWithRoyalty_ this past weekend.
Reading With Royalty is a outlet where different pageant queens can read to children in hospitals virtually!
I was able to read the book, ‘The Class Play’ by Robert Newell. I chose this book because the moral of this story was to show children that they should be grateful for the things they have and are chosen for.
Is the grass really greener on the other side? Sometimes exactly where you are is where you need to be.
Education is so important and I’m happy i can still promote literacy during COVID-19.
South Carolina has definitely become a hot spot for the rise of the covid crisis happening around us. This means our health care workers are laboring tirelessly to keep people healthy while risking their own lives. They are honestly the true heroes. So on behalf of some of my @northamericabeautypageant sisters @officialelitenorthamerica ( @marylynnfuller )and @jrmissna ( @adriana_maliamay ) and myself, we decided to collaborate and make thank you cards for these awesome people. With deepest sincerity, I want to thank you all for risking your lives for us day in and day out. Front line workers like you deserve our respect, encouragement, and praise for doing what you do. Thank you! Although I wasn’t aloud (with great understanding) to visit the hospital itself, I gave everything to Diane, the liaison and I trust they’re in good hands to hand off to our South Carolinas heroes.
if there is any way i can try to spread good energy during this time, i will. Everyone around us deserves it. Stay safe guys 💚
