Today is First Day of Black History Month 2011

Black history facts, black history, black history month, black history people, famous african americans, today is the first day of Black History Month, started by Carter G. Woodson in order to help and encourage our people to learn more about our past, document our present so that we make informed choices about our future.

As a child and godchild of historians and a lover of history myself,  I believe that every month is Black History Month and I revel in it 365 days a year, 366 in a leap year of black history facts, black history, black history month, black history people, famous african americans.

It's one of the missions of this blog to find and document the lost history of transpeople of African descent, and compile the current history being made so that our transkids growing up now and Black transpeople in general know that they have played major roles in shaping the 'T' part of the TBLG community and are expanding beyond that to impact the cis African American and cis communities as well.

We have some interesting stories to tell.    And I'll also bring some of those interesting nuggets of Black trans history to the forefront in addition to whatever Black history I feel moved to comment on for the next 28 days.

Black History Month 2011 and the beginning of a diversity of screenings, lectures and exhibitions celebrating African-American history and culture.

According to the reports, Black History Month has its roots in something called Negro History Week. In 1925, an African-American historian Dr. Carter G. Woodson, who set up the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, planned Negro History Week as a way to persuade people to learn more concerning black history. He selected a week in February that integrated the birthdays of both Abraham Lincoln and black abolitionist Frederick Douglass.

In the early 1970s, Negro History Week was re-christened Black History Week to replicate the altering language used to portray African-Americans. After that, in 1976, as America pragmatic its bicentennial, Black History Week was prolonged to the full month celebrate today of black history facts, black history, black history month, black history people, famous african americans.
