Recognizing Black History Month
February has been recognized as the month we celebrate Black History heritage. Black History Month is also referred to as African-American History Month and has been officially recognized not only in the United State and Canada but recently in Ireland and the United Kingdom as well. The only change in Ireland and the UK is that Black History Month is recognized in October instead of February.
There has been a lot of positive changes that came from the black community. From Rosa Parks to Kobe Bryant there have been many who have been touched in the vast range of interest. The world of politics, entrepreneurs, entertainers, motivational speakers, writers, educators, and many others have been made better for the ingenuity of the black community.
