Black History is American History

Lack of understanding leads to miscommunication. This is true of all relationships including friends, co-workers, family, and different cultures.


As we celebrate Black History Month, please remember that Black History is American History. We are as intertwined in the fabric of this country as anyone else; however, one month is simply not enough to touch on the many things the majority of our educational systems leave out or try to erase.


When you see the various posts of famous and lesser-known figures throughout history, know that your education doesn't have to end on the 28th. Throughout the year, continue to learn about, understand, discuss, and grow from not only Black culture, but also the various cultures that has built our history.
