A Moment in Black History
February 2020 A Moment in African American History
Welcome to black history month, first giving honor and glory to the father up above for without him there would not be a past or future, black history month is a month when we celebrate those who came before us and set goals of achievements that still carries on today.
Carter G. Woodson the father of black history month was born in 1875 in west Virginia, his parents were former slaves, they emphasize the importance of education, something he would carry with him his entire life, he spent his childhood in the Kentucky coal mines until he attended high school at the age of twenty, in just two years he graduated and went on to Berea college where he earned a degree in literature, again in only two years, from there he went on to earn his doctorate from Harvard and was the second African American in history to do so, he went on to have a career in education serving as a teacher, principal, and supervisor of schools, perhaps it was a spark from his parents emphasis on education, or maybe it was just a combination of his ambition and education, whatever it was he knew something had to be done, someone needed to write African Americans in to our nation’s history and begin reeducating the country, and we need to give god all the praise and Glory for using Carter G. Woodson to open doors for us all, this was my moment in black history, THANK YOU FATHER AMEN, SISTER MARY WILLS PRESIDENT, ST. LUKE UAME USHER BOARD
