February, African-American(Black) History Month
TWO CENTS: CHAPTER TWO
life in face of death is not moving any smoother, but there is only so little we can do as humans. I have no higher power, but only my brain to take care of which of course at times get difficult. I know it’s all about perspective and the more little things you do the happier you feel, after all, the little things are not little after all.
Welcome to my Two cents blog series where I pen my nonsense thoughts for no reasons whatsoever, and, surprisingly, I happen to have some writing ideas going on(which is not so bright, but hey Only I can diss my blogs so yeah! you go the idea.)that I remembered this is just as important. Update: Sunday has lost all the respect and it’s the first Friday of February, A month of love. And I’ve no major opinion on love so we’ll not disrespect this fine world of affection that too often gets twisted. (respect the sentiment People ) but that’ll not limit our thoughts on stories that revolve around this month.
To start, let me fire a question: Do You know Why Black history month is celebrated in February? Well, I didn’t, so I did my research and tried to be thorough with it, and here is what I would Like to share with you:
Black History Month is an annual observance originating in the United States, where it is also known as African-American History Month. It’s the Birthday month of Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States who lead the States during the American civil war, and Frederick Douglass’s death anniversary, the American social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer, and statesman who After escaping from slavery in Maryland, became a national leader of the abolitionist movement in Massachusetts and New York.
Black History Month is celebrated during the second week of February, In Honour of the contribution of Black Americans.
Now to the details, On December 18, 1865, the USA officially abolished slavery, and freed Black African-Americans, the American civil war was fought for four years and about 620,000 Americans died in the conflict to gain freedom from slavery. It’s heart-rending, but it will be unfair to not state the fact that the road America is traveling upon has been paved by the people we lost on the way, because They are who paved the way for, not just 48.2 Million Black Americans, but for the whole country.
I believe it’s important to cherish this time more than ever before because of how miserable 2020 has been for humanity, it is essential to look back and acknowledge the wins over the years. The believes that we passed on throughout the generation. The sacrifices, The protests, and the hard work. I believe in the power of togetherness, I believe in the Power of People.
PS: if I., with my words caused any pain to people, I’m truly sorry. it wasn’t intentional. in the end, Happy Black History Month.
