The History of Black Heritage

If we want to understand the state of race in America, we need to know our past — particularly the painful parts.

  • Focus on Black history, the intersectionality of Black women, those with disabilities, and influential people to recognize from history and current.
  • Resources for important conversation starters, educational resources, and organizations for support are provided


Black people deserve a time to celebrate themselves and the decency of other communities to listen and learn. Black history is something that should be taught throughout the year.

Unfortunately, that’s not the case, with educational systems banning critical race theory and quashing any attempt to reckon with our nation’s racial legacy. To counter these efforts, it is even more important to be good allies. Recognize internal biases, work to understand and undo them, consume content from Black creators or even take an African American Studies class at a local university.

We live in a society where Eurocentric history and content are taught as the norm, so it is crucial to support the Black community by giving a platform to Black creators, exposing ourselves to Black-focused content, and recognizing the central importance of Black experiences in our teachings of American history—not only during Black History Month but all year. Only then can we truly become a more equitable and tolerant society.
