'Father Of Black Historical past' Celebrated In Google Doodle

African American History Month events around Kern County

Just Goods Marketplace kicked off the Rockford Urban Ministries Black History Month sale today.

However, with racial tensions high, it remains important to remind oneself of exactly who the heroes of Black history are, without filter. "We were more than what regular history makes us out to be".

Throughout the years, Woodson was inspired to showcase positive portrayals of African Americans and to educate future generations about black history.

While African-American history should be studied throughout the year, Black History Month provides a special opportunity to focus on the unique experiences and contributions of African Americans in our state, and our country. "And they were considered poor man's food". "To see what's out there and to build from there in terms of things like, 'where did the people come from?'" "And they would eat off that because they didn't have the amount of food that they needed".

First and foremost, the month encourages a deeper look at the Black heroes that have become mainstays in U.S. culture.

According to an essay written by Howard University professor Daryl Michael Scott on the africanamericanhistorymonth.gov website, Woodson's organization the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History announced Negro History Week in 1925.

"When I voiced my ambition to go to Harvard, I was told by teachers, guidance counselors, and even some family members that "people like me" didn't go to schools like that", Torres wrote. Because "those who have no record of what their forebears have accomplished", Woodson famously said, "lose the inspiration which comes from the teaching of biography and history".

Which is exactly what Brendyn said the class has been for him. I don't think people realize that people of African descent have been here since 1603.
