The Origination of Black History Month on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


February 7, 2018 by The ReadyWriter

Black History Month often sparks an annual debate about the continued usefulness and fairness of a designated month dedicated to the history of one race. Criticisms include questions over whether it is appropriate to confine the celebration of Black History to one month, as opposed to integration of Black history into the mainstream education the rest of the year. The manner in which American schools fail to represent Black historical figures as anything other than slaves or colonial subjects, by which Black History Month reduces complex historical figures to overly simplified objects of hero worship. When the success of a people is just as poignant as their struggle and sacrifice.

But should Black History be relegated to just one month? How did it all begin?
