Black History Month: Celebrating Achievements and Inspiring Change

Originating from Dr. Carter G. Woodson's vision, the month highlights achievements in various fields, recognizing icons like Harriet Tubman, Martin Luther King Jr., Oprah Winfrey, and Barack Obama. 

Beyond individual accomplishments, the celebration embraces the cultural richness that African Americans have brought to the world through music, art, and movements like the Harlem Renaissance. Black History Month serves as a reminder of the ongoing struggle for racial equality, prompting important conversations about progress and the work still ahead. 

It is crucial to note that while we commemorate Black History Month, learning about black history should be an ongoing effort throughout the year. This High School invites people of all backgrounds to engage in dialogue, fostering understanding and unity. By commemorating Black History Month, we not only honor the past but also contribute to a collective journey towards a more inclusive and just future. 

We also look forward to the event hosted by our student organization, Black Deaf Students Union on February 23rd. Stay tuned for more information! 

To facilitate this, we encourage exploring the stories of diverse black individuals with accompanying pictures, allowing for a richer understanding of their contributions.We attached both pictures and PDF. Check them out.
