Black History Month

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.

Reading With Royalty

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.

Thanks for listening .
