Black History is truly American history. From the inventors, scientist
literature, entertainmers black americans represent the American dream of
reaching goals dispite the adversity.
If a lot of these people didn't create certain things and push the boundaries would
America be the same?
No one will ever know.
The story of Black History Month begins in Chicago during the late summer of 1915.
An alumnus of the University of Chicago with many friends in the city, Carter G. Woodson
traveled from Washington, D.C. to participate in a national celebration of the fiftieth anniversary
of emancipation sponsored by the state of Illinois. Thousands of African Americans travelled from
across the country to see exhibits highlighting the progress their people had made since the destruction of slavery.
Awarded a doctorate in Harvard three years earlier, Woodson joined the other exhibitors with a black history display.
The 1960s had a dramatic effect on the study and celebration of black history. Before the decade was over,
Negro History Week would be well on its way to becoming Black History Month. The shift to a month-long
celebration began even before Dr. Woodson death. As early as 1940s, blacks in West Virginia, a state where
Woodson often spoke, began to celebrate February as Negro History Month. In Chicago, a now forgotten
cultural activist, Fredrick H. Hammaurabi, started celebrating Negro History Month in the mid-1960s.
Having taken an African name in the 1930s, Hammaurabi used his cultural center, the House of Knowledge,
to fuse African consciousness with the study of the black past. By the late 1960s, as young blacks on college
campuses became increasingly conscious of links with Africa, Black History Month replaced Negro History Week
at a quickening pace. Within the Association, younger intellectuals, part of the awakening, prodded Woodson's
organization to change with the times. They succeeded. In 1976, fifty years after the first celebration, the
Association used its influence to institutionalize the shifts from a week to a month and from Negro history to
black history. Since the mid-1970s, every American president, Democrat and Republican, has issued
proclamations endorsing the Association's annual theme.
On a daily basis local fire fighter Eric T. Washington helps the community but protecting it from harm.
But this weekend, Washington went a little further and decided to bring the community together for
a water drive to send residents of Flint,MI clean water.
"I wasn't expecting all this", said Washington. "I orginally planned to just take a
Uhaul and now I'm taking six semi-trucks and still need more."
