Carter G. Woodson, a Black historian who received his PhD from Harvard University in 1912 and who was known as the “father of Black history” once stated, “We should emphasize not Negro History but the Negro in history. What we need is not a history of selected races or nations but the history of the world void of national bias, race hate, and religious prejudice.” Inspired to celebrate Black heritage, history, and accomplishments, Woodson founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, which later birthed a Negro History Week that grew to become Black History Month. These days, Black History Month is celebrated each February.


Never forget that justice is what love looks like in public.” —Cornel West, philosopher, political activist, and social critic


“When I was born, I was colored. I soon became a Negro. Not long after that, I was Black. Most recently, I was African American. It seems we’re on a roll here. But I am still first and foremost in search of freedom.” —Harry Belafonte, singer, songwriter, activist, and actor


 “I don’t stand for the Black man’s side. I don’t stand for the White man’s side. I stand for God’s side.” —Bob Marley, 20th-century singer, songwriter, and musician who was an advocate of Pan-Africanism


“Loving God is like my being Black. I just am. [No one says] ‘You know what? I’m gonna be blacker today!’ It’s my culture. It’s not something I put on or take off or show more. You just communicate that in the way you live your life.” —Angela Bassett, actress
