It is a shame we have to have Black History Month.
Black history should be integrated throughout the year as a part of school curriculum and our culture. It is embarrassing that we need to create a month to teach black history and it is tokenism.
Black history is American history! First, let’s work on learning black history through out the year as a matter of course. Then, let’s eliminate Black History Month from our calendars.
The same should be done with Women’s History Month in March.
Never miss a local story.
