Black History to me means Understanding yourself and Reflecting on where you could've been vs Where you are now. Its imperative that we know our history becuz if we leave it up to the schools all we are going to know is about white inventors and presidents. Although they teach us about slaves, the individual slaves arent highlighted, The chapter's subtitle is the name of the man that owned,sold or abused the slaves. Black children are just told that black people from the past did sooo much, but where not taught exactly WHAT they did. So Black HIstory month is a time to reflect and comprehend. We're here for a reason and we're going to succeed
