We're almost halfway through Black History Month. I'm thankful for the many events and programs drawing attention to the significance of this month. A month with other acknowledged dates. In February we also have Abraham Lincoln's birthday (which we celebrate) and Fredrick Douglas's birthday (which we don't), along with President's Day, and Washington's birthday. And let's not forget Valentine's Day when the world focuses on love. Do I think that BHM was chosen to be celebrated in February as a fluke? No. The precursor to BMH was Black History Week created in 1926 by Carter G Woodson. He said,
"If a race has no history, it has no worthwhile tradition, it becomes a negligible factor in the thought of the world, and it stands in danger of being exterminated." Goodreads.com/quotes
With a plethora of information found on the web, there's not enough time to discover all there is to discover about black history.
That's why I would like to introduce some of the Black History Missionary. I may be a little late sharing the information, but never the less, the information needs to be shared. Please visit, https://missionexus.org/black-history-month-devotional-series/
Their names may be unknown, but these individuals have not only impacted black history but have made a difference in the kingdom of heaven.
