(BPRW) Black History is American History
The American bicentennial observance in 1976 saw this Black History Week expanded into Black History Month as a part of the celebration of our nation’s history. A remembrance of and tribute to the important individuals, movements and ultimately the history of the African Diaspora, Black History Month is celebrated each year throughout the month of February in the United States and Canada.
Schools across the country take advantage of this great opportunity to educate their students on the importance of African American contributions to society in a variety of disciplines including, but not limited to, science, agriculture, civil rights, law, religion, music, art, dance, theatre, poetry and literature. From Martin Luther King Jr. to W.E.B. Dubois, to Maya Angelou and Nikki Giovanni, Toni Morrison and Langston Hughes, Mohammed Ali and Hank Aaron, Black History Month seeks to educate and inform. For Black history is indeed American history.
