Since 1976 the United States has recognized the month of February, "Black History Month". A month where we recognize and honor and celebrate the achievements of African American's, past and present.
My grandmother would always say "Give them their flowers while they can still smell them", and I believe it is important for us to recognize those who are putting in work for the African American community!
Black History Month is designed to recognize history, experiences and accomplishments of black people. This month I will featuring interviews with black artists, community leaders, and activists. Shedding light on their work & accomplishments.
Where did #BHM come from?
Black History Month began as “Negro History Week,” which was created in 1926 by Carter G. Woodson, a noted African American historian, scholar, educator, and publisher. It became a month-long celebration in 1976. The month of February was chosen to coincide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln.
Happy Black History Month!
