February is Black History month. The one and only month in the year in which Black people as a collective, remember, reflect on, and acknowledge where we have come from. While this month is the designated time for us to observe and honor who we are and where we've come from, it is important to remember that there can be no American history without Black history. Trying to separate one from the other is like trying to separate water from rain. But because most school curriculum abridges Black history to include only minute details about slavery and The Reverand Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., it is more than necessary for us to take time to both acknowledge, and in some cases expose the triumphs, victories, and accomplishments of Black people in America.
