February is the month in which many Americans, especially Americans of African descent, celebrate the history of coming to America.
February was chosen , not because it is the shortest month, but because it is the month of the birth of Abraham Lincoln the president who emancipated all the slaves. Not every person who was a slave was Black or Native American. Many whites were indentured slaves. Today the financial institution executives have made many of our citizens modern day indentured slaves.
Included in that history are the trials and tribulations of being enslaved; but the joyful part of the history is the celebration of the achievements of the progeny of former black slaves.
At YouThinkWhat we acknowledge the successes and the triumphs in the face of extreme adverse conditions faced by men and women who despite those obstacles have contributed to the culture that is known around the planet as being uniquely American in its style.
