Morgan Freeman on Black History Month

I don’t want a Black History Month. Black history is American history —Morgan Freeman


You can’t extract the history of Blacks from the history of America; it is one and the same.

I am inclined to agree with Mr. Freeman–Black History is American History and should be included, in a substantive way, in our national educational curriculum, as well as the broader cultural lexicon.

According to DNA ancestry, my Black ancestors have been here for just as long as some of my White ancestors and even longer than others (Irish).

Clearly, black history has suffered in isolation for long enough. It’s time to bring it out and give it the honor and respect that it deserves.


Here’s a fascinating and very necessary project from The Atlantic that seeks to fill in the blanks of lost Black history in America.
