Black history month is every month. The reason why I say this is simply because I seek to incorporate black/afrocentric understandings, parallels, and cultural contexts to the rich and rough realities of today. Black history is being created globally, every moment of the day. We mold, shift, and lead the world in more ways than we know.
Your neighborhood historian Dr. B. Rob (@brxidgette, 🐦: BrieRob) said, “#BHM wasn’t created by the white man’s conspiracy to give us the shortest month but through the work of Dr. Carter G. Woodson, Harvard’s second black PhD graduate in history (behind Du Bois)”
Just like last year, I will seek to post about black excellence throughout the month. One of the most critical pieces of being an effective educator is to leave an imprint on the student so that she studies the topic(s) for herself. This is the time to TEACH the rich history of black folk that we’ve been learning all year-round. I’m posting everyday this month to teach y’all just a few folk you probably never heard of or was miseducated on. Now is the time to be courageous in our faiths and unapologetic in our truths.

Love, Peace and Blessings my brothers and sisters.
