Good Morning where ever you are! February is gone and we have another Reflections here with the important question, with a perfect answer.
I’m sure some of us have asked….Why is Black History Month important? Well, I’ve asked this myself and here’s the answer.
African-Americans have accomplished to push and inspire us. They’ve paved the way to make things better and sacrificed their lives to give us a strong foundation. A foundation that has continue to carry on this day. Without their dedication, we wouldn’t have the voice to carry that legacy. African-Americans, as with Hispanics, Asians and so forth, got fed up with idiosyncracies of America. Each of them decided to not only do something, but dedicate their lives to fighting injustice. It sound’s a bit corny, but it’s the truth. Example, The Black Arts Movement. As I’ve said in the report, this movement gave African-Americans more power to speak their minds politically, intellectually, and artistically. They didn’t hold back anything.
It’s important that future generations learn and understand the history. If Rosa Parks didn’t stand up for what she believed in, then we’ve would’ve still been sitting in the back of those buses.
So in point, we celebrate Black History Month because we need to know the people, the past, present, and future. Honestly, we shouldn’t celebrate for just one month, we need to celebrate everyday.
