A month full of inspiration & Love!
Every year in February, we honor to Black History Month. I always wonder why BHM was in February. From what I learnt BHM started out as a week called" Negro History Week". In the 60s various colleges expanded the recognition of African American history to the full month of February. According to People magazine Andrea Wurzburger , In 1915 historian Carter G Woodson and minister Jesse E Moorland founded what is today known as Association for the Study of African-American life and History in order to bring awareness to the African-American people who had made contribution to society". This information was definitely a gem for me.
I also Love this quote which is a fact in my eyes "I am my ancestors wildest dreams " if you take a moment and think about your family's journey up to today. I'm sure the ancestors, yours and mine prayed for a better day for whatever reasons. Here we are the same but different, trying to make sense of this thing called life.
