Today marks the start of Black History Month, which is usually not marked on most of our calendars. This post will provide you with some engaging and entertaining events, so get ready to mark your calendars. Even as an African American myself, there are still several perspectives in the African American community that I am unaware of. American history is one of several cultures and this month provides a great opportunity for all of us to gain more insight into the African American culture.
One of the best parts of living in a city is the opportunity to meet people from all backgrounds. New York City is truly the definition of a ‘melting pot’, but one of the ironies is that cultures don’t always ‘melt’ together. This list of events will hopefully provide you the chance to ‘melt’ with one of the many cultures in your city. Whether you decide to walk the streets of Harlem like Martin Luther King, watch a documentary about the black panthers or listen to the Harlem Chamber Players, you will gain a new perspective, while also having a good time.
Hope that you are able to attend some of the events. For those that are not in New York, please do the same as every major city will have a variety of Black History Month events. Enjoy and let me know about your experiences. Don’t forget to subscribe so that you are aware of future post.
