Black History Month: A different view
Placeholder Image
Black History Month, also known as African-American History Month, is an annual observance in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom for rememberance of important people and events in the history of the Black diaspora. Until the early part of the last century, most Black leaders and many individuals among the first generation of educated Black Americans proudly styled themselves “Race Men” who were, above all, concerned with reconstructing the economic, moral and cultural life of their people. Today, however, such a reference is not only shunned, but repudiated.
