The 2014 Black History theme is Civil Rights in America.
Now that Black History Month has come to an end, find ways to research and teach and preserve Black history in your family, local communities and further. During the other 11 months, that's the time to dig deeper than MLK and Malcolm X. That's the time to explore the contributions of people of African descent to the world in education, math, science, arts, technology, music, sports, religion and culture. Also acknowledge what we are doing today. Our youth need to know that people of African-descent are entrepreneurs and CEO's and CFO's and teachers, and scientists and inventors and researchers.
Do not wait for someone else to teach you, your children, your community or your network about your history. Research, explore and TEACH them yourself.
