National Black History Month- Ways to Engage

“We should emphasize not Negro History, but the Negro in history. What we need is not a history of selected races or nations, but the history of the world void of national bias, race hate, and religious prejudice.” —Carter Woodson




The older I get, the more I want ALL of us whom are descendants of the African diaspora, to loudly, and proudly display/brag about our cultural milestones and accomplishments. As a lot of us do not categorize, nor describe ourselves as African American, during this national celebration of Blackness, it is up to those of us who are astute in history, to highlight the myriad of ways in which we can learn.


 
  • Head to your local library and check out books from our most celebrated authors such as: Alice Walker, James Baldwin, Zora Neal Hurston and Claude McKay.

  • Visit the closest Black History Museum- tours are normally free, and off self-guided options.

  • Learn a recipe from an elder in your life.

  • Write in your journal/notebook what makes you proud to be Black.

  • Support Black owned businesses- either online or brick and mortar.

  • Research your last name- you will be surprised at what you find out! Familysearch.org is a wonderful site for those of us of Carribean/West Indian descent.

  • Gather your funds and plan a trip to where your lineage is from. (This can be really fun, and emotional depending on who you choose to travel with).

  • Rent /download films about our community on your favorite streaming platform.
