Black History Month

Black History Month is important because we show appreciation and thanks to the ones

who paved a way for our generation, and future generations today. It stood and still stands for a

purpose; it had a meaning and an impact on all African Americans all over the world. Black

History Month is when African Americans fought for their rights, their lives, freedom, and

equality. When I think of Black History Month, I think about how children give reports or

projects about an important Black Historian figure (Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth) and give

background details, or Negro spirituals being song (We Shall Overcome, lift every voice and

sing) to all come together to be one.

Black History purpose is for us to share with one another what we may be going through,

have went through, and even fears we feel we may face, but the most important part of this all is

to see the problem and find a positive solution. To be a world with no inequality, no pain, and no

struggles is what we all want peace, equality, freedom, and violence free. We fail to realize that

Black History Month is about dedication, education, and appreciation to all who have

contributed to our society. African Americans are supposed to show pride in who they are and

what they stand for, as well as have dignity and respect that they are.

Black History Month is a reminder to us all no matter race, gender, or sexuality to make

our lives better, to build bridges and set goals for one another, overall make the world a better

place to bring up our children and make our ancestors proud and give dedication to the struggles,

hardships, and pain they went through just for us to be where we are today. I am learning that

overtime we as African Americans are still facing the same things as our ancestors with racism,

inequality, history is still repeating itself but I do believe that better days are coming.
