IT’S BLACK HISTORY MONTH! It’s officially Black History Month where we celebrate and acknowledge our African American heroes. Martin Luther King Jr. Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Malcom X, and many more! These people have marched, debated, voted, and fought for our rights. Other countries around the world like Canada, and the United Kingdom also celebrate Black History Month. We should appreciate these heros because if it was not for them we wouldn’t be we would not be where we are today. We have freedom because of these heroes, blacks and whites can now sit in the same room because of these heros, African Americans can now get an education because of these heros! We appreciate what these heros have done for us and now we thank them with a month of celebration.
