Black History Month: Plainfield Schools Host Community Talent

Black History Month Events Include Presentation About Little Rock Nine, Black History 101 Mobile Museum Exhibit and Free Screening of “Baltimore Rising”

To kick off Black History Month, Google honored historian and journalist Carter G. Woodson, known as the "Father of Black History" with a Google Doodle on the search engine's homepage.

The "Lift Every Voice Award" will also be presented at the ceremony.

"I think that actually having a Black History Month kind of emphasizes important accomplishments that people might not be aware of otherwise", Hudson said.

The event takes place 6 p.m. February 16 and a discussion led by NWC Associate Professor of History Amy McKinney will follow the film.

Then consider that it was precisely here that the precursor to Black History Month was born, after Woodson eyed February for a celebration, as Google notes, "to commemorate the birth months of abolitionist Frederick Douglass and President Abraham Lincoln".

Men of Excellence, an organization that supports minority males on campus, has hosted the "Continuing the Legacy Walk" since 2015.

He will share selections from the poetry and prose of major African-American writers whose work has influenced generations of Americans of all ethnicities and helped define the African-American experience. The week was created to bring to the attention and magnify the accomplishments of African Americans.

If our understanding of black history begins and ends with the predictable homages to a handful of great black Americans, we've not made much progress. The exhibit will be on display at the Janelle Y. Hembree Alumni House on Friday, Feb. 9, and is free and open to the public. He encouraged African-American empowerment after he realized that African-Americans were being culturally indoctrinated, instead of being taught, in American schools.

Gibson said there is a benefit to understanding all of America's history and a need for Americans to empathize about the painful part of their country's past.

His next venture was founding the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, inspired by his time in Chicago, a collective whose goal was to formalise the education of adults and young children on their nation's past. It was later renamed the Journal of African American History.

No reasonable person would make that claim, of course, but the same is not true of black history.
