#BlackHistoryMonth MOMENT: Grappling With The Full Legacy of Racism In The United States! [details]

black-history21-1thegamuttAs we CLOSE out Black History Month 2021, we must speak on the LEGACY of RACISM in the UNITED STATES! I came across this ARTICLE that we just have to talk about because it speaks VOLUMES!!!

In 1926, Carter G Woodson started “Negro History Week” to rectify the fact that Black people “were overlooked, ignored, and even suppressed by the writers of history textbooks and the teachers who use them”.

Woodson chose the second week of February because it coincided with the birthdates of President Abraham Lincoln and the slavery abolitionist Frederick Douglass. In 1970, Black educators and students at Kent State University began using the entire month of February to celebrate and recognize Black triumphs and tribulations. US presidents started to formally designate February as Black History Month in 1976. In recent years, other countries including Canada, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and Ireland have formally recognized and celebrated the history of the African diaspora.

But the reality this Black History Month is that there are still numerous obstacles to real racial equity. Continue reading #BlackHistoryMonth MOMENT: Grappling With The Full Legacy of Racism In The United States! [details]

It’s BLACK HISTORY MONTH, and we are continuing to CELEBRATE the achievements and contributions African-Americans have made to SOCIETY as we know it. So let’s talk about Alexander Miles.

Alexander Miles was an African-American inventor who was best known for being awarded a patent for an automatically opening and closing elevator door design in 1887. Contrary to many sources, Miles was not the original inventor of this device. In 1874, 13 years before Miles’ patent was awarded, John W. Meaker was awarded U.S. Patent 147,853 for the invention of the first automatic elevator door system.
