Standing up against injustice and resisting historic and ongoing oppression has been the cornerstone for racial and civil liberty of Black citizens throughout the world. The theme for this year’s Black History Month sheds light on how the resistance to racial terrorism and inequity in all forms advocated for the protection and maintenance of Black lives globally. This February, we invite you to help rebuild dreams by promoting peace, love, equality, and justice.
Black History Month was a seed planted by Carter Woodson and Jesse Moorland in the early 1900s. By 1926, it was celebrated as “Negro History Week” in the month of February to coincide with the birthdays of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, who was responsible for the abolishment of slavery, along with Frederick Douglass. The Civil Rights Movement of the 60s gave it momentum across college campuses, and eventually, in 1976, the month was formally recognized by U.S. President Gerald Ford.
Change begins with learning and listening. The African slave trade brought Islam to North America. Learning about our history is imperative to understanding the struggle of the Black community. Reading about the tribulations and achievements of Black Americans and Black Muslim Americans is not only important but needed to help us pass these messages across to countless people. This can help Muslims organize community discussions to educate and combat racism in our institutions. Finally, passing these resources to our families and the younger generations can not only serve as honoring these people but also help prevent similar mistakes.
