Why You Should Celebrate Black History Month - Every Day | Bicultural Mom™

Why You Should Celebrate Black History Month - Every Day | Bicultural Mom™ | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it

Black History Month (originally Negro History Week) was established in 1926 in an attempt to promote black history learning among the general population. Before it’s establishment, black faces were systematically left out of American history and black history in education was viewed overall as unimportant and unnecessary.

 

Since it’s founding, there has been a ceaseless resistance to learning about black history and the positive images of African Americans that it conjures. Amazingly, nearly 100 years later, many individuals still fail to see the importance of this heritage month.
