Yay! It’s February… Black History Month. In honor of Black History Month this year, I will be doing a series of posts to talk about my favorite documentaries, unsung heroes, books, and more. I have a lot of Black History Content planned and I’m excited to share it.
2020 was an eye-opening year; especially for me. It exposed all of the pain and suffering that often goes unnoticed and/or unheard. I think that at a time like this, Black History Month is as important as ever.
I will be talking about the importance of Black History and what this month means to me. I was inspired to talk about this subject because I recently joined my highschool’s Delta Scholars Club and for Black History Month we we are going to record a video of ourselves talking about what Black History means to us. I was instantly inspired and I wanted to share my thoughts on here as well. I will share this video later in the month.
Black History month is a time to celebrate, share, and recognize the achievements of Black heritage and culture. From MLK to John Lewis, and so many others who helped contribute to where we are in today’s society. Black History Month means to me, a time to share, celebrate, and understand the impact of black heritage and culture. I also think that Black History Month isn’t just about the struggle that it took to fight for our freedom but it’s also about continually striving for equal rights while celebrating the integrity, leadership, determination and contributions of black people to society and the world. We must never forget how far we’ve come but we also have to understand that the future generations depend on continuing the efforts of past giants in the movements.
