Black Americans have been, and continue to be, foundational to the idea of American freedom. More than any other group in this country’s history, we have served, generation after generation, in an overlooked but vital role. It should take in our optimism and hope and reveal our complete true selves. Black Make History is a time to recommit, go into the world, and show that we are equal, have the same rights, and have achieved success at every level.  We have a rich history of making our communities, cities, and world a better place. Our history did not begin with slavery and will not be marginalized as such as long as we choose not to let it.
