The prompt for this week is what does Black history month mean to you?
The answer is that I don’t know what it means to me. I never really thought about it. When I went to Washington D.C a few years ago I saw that they were building a Black History Museum and I thought that it looked interesting. Ryan is celebrating Black History Month by having certain foods on the 22nd I think. Anyway, I think that Black History Month celebrates our cultural diversity. It shows how far we have come. In the 1800s, black people were slaves. In 1864, slavery was banned. In 1964 was the Civil Rights movement. It banned discrimination in the work place based on color, race, religion, origin, or gender. It reminds me of the American Girl books I used to read. One book tells the story of a girl named Addy who escapes slavery and lives in a city. She is separated from her family and reunites with them in the end.
