People often think of February as the month of love, complete with boxes of heart-shaped chocolate and teddy bears, but behind the lovey-dovey-ness that is Valentine’s Day, February also brings with it the month-long celebration that is Black History Month.

Black History Month is the “annual celebration by African Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of blacks in U.S. history” (History.com). The event started as “Negro History Week” in 1926. The idea originated from Carter G. Woodson, an African American historian, author, journalist and the founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (History.com). Woodson is famous for a lot of the books he wrote, but his most famous book is the Mis-Education of the Negro teaching African American self-empowerment (Biography.com).

The estimated number of slaves around the world today is around 40 million, which is higher than it was when slavery was legal throughout the 19th century. And the number of enslaved people is constantly increasing. Today, slavery is the fastest growing crime in the world (End It Movement).
