Do we really understand black history month?
Melania Trump tweeted recently, "Let us come together in celebration of our diversity to remember our past and look towards our future."
Im very sorry Melania I think you need to hit the books. Black history month is not a celebration of diversity. Black history month is a time to recognize African Americans contributions, sacrifices, and lack of recognition in this countrys history. African Americans history is hidden and not talked about in most schools history curriculum. Black history month is the time me recognize civil rights leaders like martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, and many more who sacrificed there lives to attain equal rights in this country.
Melania is a direct recipient of white priviledge so how could she understand the meaning of black history month.
