My experience with Black History Month isn’t the same as everyone’s, but my reasons for disliking it are valid enough. I think that because the education system is so backwards, there is a need for Black History Month to continue to exist. However, I know that there are so many more interesting things we can discuss that skirted over to fulfill the curriculum requirements in our schools.
So in ways, I agree with the interview Morgan Freeman did. I dislike Black History Month for condensing the history of a people to 28 or 29 days, but I don’t think that not talking about it is the way to go. Only by talking about race can we break down the barriers that the social construct has created. Peace and love.
