February marks the observance of Black History Month or African American History Month, providing an opportunity to spotlight, honor, and commemorate the remarkable contributions made by the Black community to science, the arts, politics, and social justice.

Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, and Martin Luther King exemplify the transformative power of non-violent conflict resolution, their lives serving as ongoing inspiration and guiding lights for our collective journey.

The trio of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson, celebrated in the film Hidden Figures, played pivotal roles in the historic launch of John Glenn into orbit, showcasing the brilliance and resilience of Black women in the face of adversity.

In understanding why we celebrate Black History Month, it becomes evident that it is a time to acknowledge and appreciate the profound impact Black individuals have had throughout history.

Moreover, why celebrating Black History Month is important lies in recognizing the often-overlooked achievements and contributions, fostering a deeper understanding of the diverse and rich tapestry that is American history.

In 2021, the nation witnessed the historic inauguration of its first Black vice president, a woman with a significant background as a former district attorney of San Francisco, attorney general, and junior US Senator from California.

Moreover, the inauguration featured the poignant recitation of “The Hill We Climb” by twenty-two-year-old Amanda Gorman, making her the youngest inaugural poet ever. Her poem served as a powerful call for unity, collaboration, and togetherness among the American people, resonating with its promise of hope and encouragement.

Born in the heart of the Deep South during the civil rights movement in New Orleans, La., I hold a belief that addressing racial harm requires truth, accountability, and, hopefully, reconciliation. Engaging in the necessary and difficult conversations is crucial for progress.

As Amanda Gorman eloquently stated on December 29, 2021:

“There is always light.
If only we’re brave enough to see it.
If only we’re brave enough to be it.”

Love and Blessings,
