Dear Pep Squad,
Each year a theme is thoughtfully crafted to commemorate Black History Month.
The Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) was established in 1915 and is known as the Founder of Black History Month. The 2018 theme is:
The theme acknowledges the centennial of the end of “The War to End All Wars”, World War I. We recognize that Black veterans and civilians have been instrumental in every American war since, as well. We further recognize war’s impact on Black America, in general…the good, bad, and ugly.
Speaking of impact, it doesn’t take many days surfing the internet to recognize that Google is intentional in the cover art its displays each new day on its search engine site. Have you noticed Google’s cover art today and really taken the time to note all of the figures that history shall not forget.
Google selected a drawing that celebrates Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson, the Father of Black History. Note that the drawing depicts him as a writer. A Writer, Historian, and Academian, to name a few talents. In 2018, I hope to witness and learn of more stories in Black America that recognize our little acorns (young) and our mighty oaks (mature) for the same talents (and more) that Dr. Carter G. Woodson exemplified.
…and not just in February!
We all have pens and are authoring the next chapters in history. Make your chapter a best-seller.
