Happy Black History Month 2017
This is the first we're celebrating as the Museum of African American History in Washington DC is open and continues to draw visitors. It's also sadly, the first one we've had with Trump as president.
Moving on from that depressing thought.
Hmm, will definitely have to get my passes early before Creating Change 2018 happens in DC once I find out the #CC18 dates.
Black history is not just a recitation of dates and past accomplishments of a mighty people. Black history is also being made by Black people living in our 21st century time like POTUS 44 and countless other trailblazers..
is also being made by numerous Black trans, bi and SGL people here and across the African Diaspora in our 21st century time frame..
Our history is also an enduring record of and emphatic proof that we're here, we've accomplished great things to benefit ourselves and humankind despite massive challenges, and are continuing to build on that legacy of achievement.
Happy Black History Month 2017!
