February is Black History Month.
Black History Month is celebrated to remember the important people and events in the history of the African diaspora.
Black history month has been Observed for 53 years. Black History Month is celebrated to raise the Flag of Liberation (Red, Black, Green and Yellow)
- Black represents the dark-skinned peoples of sub-Saharan from which the African Diaspora sprang forth.
- Red represents the pain and bloodshed through struggles for liberation.
- Green represents the fertile lands of continental Africa.
- Yellow is used, to represents the immense riches to be found in many countries across continental Africa.
This month is a time for each of us to reflect on a complicated history that stretches around the world to any place where people of African descent were forcibly transported or willfully migrated in search of opportunities.
We will continue to celebrate Black History Month throughout February to highlight Black and African heritage as a commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. It is important for all of us to educate ourselves and each other in ways that reinforce the idea that our histories, realities, and futures are interwoven.
