Black History Month Feb. 2010 on Dr. Jay's site. In 1926 Dr. Carter G. Woodson, a Harvard Ph.D, launched “Negro History Week” in the second week of February.  In 1976 (the 200th birthday of the U.S.), it was extended to the entire month of February to allow for more time to celebrate with various activities and events. Today, DrJays.com will be kicking off BHM with daily tributes to African-American fashion icons – past and present.

Slavery perspective. I love this quote. Its very important to make this distinction for people.

People were taken from Ireland and made slaves. People were taken from their Indian Tribes and made slaves. People were taken from China and made slaves. People were taken from Germany and made slaves.

Britain’s Biggest Secret - The Black Victorians. Who were the Black Victorians? Mainstream history has virtually erased them from our minds and history books. We have been filled with images of slavery in America and across the world, but why is it that this chapter in black history was skipped? Why isn’t it equally common knowledge that in the midst of all of that darkness there was light, also. Never before seen photos were uncovered, giving us over 200 images of glances into our past.

9 outstanding Black History Month books for kids

Henry’s Freedom Box: A True Story from the Underground Railroad by Ellen Levine, illustrated by Kadir Nelson.I love this book!

Harriet Tubman became famous as a "conductor" on the Underground Railroad during the turbulent 1850s. Born a slave on Maryland's eastern shore, she endured the harsh existence of a field hand, including brutal beatings. In 1849 she fled slavery, despite a bounty on her head, she returned to the South at least 19 times to lead her family & hundreds of other slaves to freedom via the Underground Railroad. Tubman also served as a scout, spy and nurse during the Civil War. #tubman
