Black History Month is a celebration of peace for the American Black.

Black History Month is a celebration of survival of African people who  adapted to a foreign land, America, while living lifestyles less than of animals, without the ability to communicate in their native tongue, given strange names, assigned most times strange work, while looking at the same stars and moon and sun and not seeing anything else familiar.

Black History Month is a celebration of accomlishments and contributions made to America by the only group of Americans whose families did not choose to be Americans. We cannot celebrate Black History without recognizing the kindness of White believers who was instrumental in the reconstruction of America; ministers who coalitioned in God's name, and did the right thing for mankind by helping free slaves; and we celebrate Blacks who rationalized joining the military as a step toward freedom for a people. We celebrate civil rights leaders for their contributions toward uniting America. And we celebrate our Black and White ancestors who was able to adapt to bondage physically yet not mentally which gave us to freedom to know a better day was yet to come.

The struggle for Blacks has been more nightmares than dreams until civil rights. Blacks had to find a peace no other Americans had need to search for. Being brought to America in the belly of slave ships is the reason Blacks lived nightmares. The celebrating of Black History brought many dreams to reality and helped Blacks adapt to love America. I guess I would say Black History became therapeutic.
