“If a race has no history … it stands in danger of being exterminated.” Meet Carter G. Woodson, “The Pioneering Father of Black History“
We are happy to say that the Real Life Real Truth website has many articles posted about the present day and the history of blacks before and without the acknowledgment of Black History Month. With much truth knowledge and education easily obtained from the research, many find that black and brown people have had a major impact on not just black history but is integrally part of all history and its creation. It appears today that many are not filled with excitement in only celebrating Black History for just a month when blacks have contributed so much in the building of civilizations. Some would say that in one tongue blacks should be celebrated for a month for their contributions and accomplishments in society but in another tonged racial injustices and systemic racism seem to be yet still another ongoing issue for it to appear that blacks are celebrated and demised all at the same time. In 1926, the pioneering father of black history Dr. Carter Woodson thought that having the first initial “Negro History Week” would create better relations between black and white people with positive uplifting and showcasing blacks for their many contributions with the hope that whites could better appreciate black people and their positive images imposed in truth. Black history is inspiring and the knowledge of historical accomplishments by blacks is every day and could cover years as opposed to just a month. The education system has not been the best resource in teaching the true history of black people. Many understand that what is taught in grade school are the negative images of American history involving blacks (slavery) and not the many other positive images from blacks and their contributions. Just imagine how one personal view can be affected as a child from seeing positive images that look like them while others are viewing these same positive images as well of many that may not look like them. A changed perspective from negative to positive is one of the many reasons to celebrate black history and relying on a child’s school only to give them the truth about themselves and the people that help create civilizations not talked about is not the set up for success when it comes to interacting on a social level. The true positive teaching regarding the beating pulse of American History and Black History outside and beyond a month comes from the child’s home and the question may be what are you teaching your child about black people and Black History?
