I have so much to say about Black History Month, I honestly don’t know where to begin. Some of the following are my own thoughts, but some are also images/memes from other sources that sum up what’s in my heart more than I can ever say.
This February, I encourage everyone to learn as much as they can about the amazing, untold stories of Black Americans who have changed history. These stories are filled with struggle and suffering, but also priceless advice from the people who have been there. Black history did not begin with slavery and does not end with the Civil Rights Movement.
This discovery during the next 30 days SHOULD NOT end as soon as the calendar flips to March. Please continue to expand your knowledge, and your children’s knowledge, for the year and beyond.
We were Kings and Queens for centuries. Entrepreneurs. Mothers. Fathers. Warriors. Didn’t start with slavery. Won’t end with slavery. #BlackHistoryMonth
Found on Facebook. This is life. This is everything.

Imagine at 6 yrs old having to be escorted into your school by Federal Marshalls as a part of integration. That’s just what Ruby Bridges did in 1960. It’s why she’s our #HistoricalHiddenFigures feature today. Thanks for changing the game in education #BlackHistoryMonth @WeAreABIS pic.twitter.com/UPHwLwMgUe
