Black History Month

​Today is February 1, the start of Black History Month. So the questions always asked by “white folks” and some blacks are why do we need a Black History Month and/or is Black History Month still necessary. The answer is because neither blacks contributions to the world nor the history of Africa before colonization are taught in any history class that I know of. It’s because of this lie of omission or as we currently name it, #AlternativeFacts, that “White Folks” assume incorrectly that Africans are primitive savages that were educated and civilized by the benevolent, white countries. 

Slavery is not African history. Slavery interrupted African history. Mutabaruka


Since I am an educator I will attempt to educate on blacks contributions to America as well as provide African facts  past. In order to not offend to quickly I start of with something simple.
 African Wildlife: There are over 1,100 different species of mammals in Africa and over 2,600 species of birds.

Four of the five fastest land animals live in Africa – fastest is the cheetah at 70 mph, wildebeest, lion and Thomson’s gazelle all about 50 mph.
