Black History is a time of rejoicing, celebrating and thanking those African-Americans for giving us hope or a life lesson that could be used.

This year’s theme for Black History month, “African Americans and the Vote”, recognizes the struggle for voting rights among both black men AND women throughout American history. It is an ongoing struggle for people of color that continues into the 21st century.

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of blacks in U.S. history.  Also known as African American History Month, the event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G.

A study of the black experience and the effect of society on them and their effect within society aims to, among other things, help eradicate many racial stereotypes. Black studies implements history, family structure, social and economic pressures, stereotypes, and gender relationships.
