Perspective and Reflection On Black History

Celebrate History

“Black History is American History”

Barack Obama

The importance of celebrating black history is to recognize the struggles of the people who got us to where we are now and the celebration continues in recognition of the achievement of black innovation, greatness and excellence. I am black history!

Civil Rights Activists and Politicians

Let’s not forget the people who paved the way for many of us to enjoy the freedom we now know. The article on The Reason Black History Month Is In February is insightful and educational. It is a short history lesson on social change, civil rights and black history (Jean-Phillipe, 2021.) Most importantly, it highlights some of the stalwarts of the social change movement; Martin Luther King, Presidents Lincoln and Ford, Maya Angelou, Carter G. Woodson and Fredrick Douglass.

Africa to America

Let’s not forget our forefathers; Africans who were brought to the American states and sold as slaves. Slaves to work on plantation homes and in the fields. Remember their journey; it should never be forgotten. We celebrate their courage in standing up to oppression while facing adversity inorder to become agents for change. The celebration of their lives is a co-mingling of sadness and pride. I am black History!

“Great men cultivate love and only little men cherish a spirit of hatred; assistance given to the weak makes the one who gives it strong; oppression of the unfortunate makes one weak.”

Booker T. Washington

Freedom

Let’s continue to live the words of the celebrated reggae artist Bob Marley, “emancipate ourselves from mental slavery and forward in this generation.” His expressions on slavery, freedom and love continue to be powerful messages across cultures globally. I am black history!
