Celebrating Black History Month

February marks Black History Month, an annual observance originating in the United States. This also means that, in various quarters of the nation, people will engage in various celebrations and acknowledgments of the history of people of African descent.

The history of Black Americans in this nation is vastly distinct from others given the religious, economic, social, psychological and educational experiences. By exploring Black History Month, the nation is paying homage to a group of people who have contributed greatly to the enhancement of America.

Black History Month showcases the diversity and pluralism that has always been in ample supply in the Black community. Such diverse exposure demonstrates that the Black community is not a monolith but rather a great mosaic of talent.
