Because of African people's colonization, enslavement and dislocation, our people suffer what Harold Cruse, the author of The Crisis of The Negro Intellectual , calls historical discontinuity.
We as a people still allow others to define our reality. I am concerned how others are attempting to define the month of February for their own purposes.
They have gone back to Black History Month. A growing minority prefers the term African Liberation Month. Richard B. Moore, the great Barbadian revolutionary and author of the book, The Name Negro: Its Origin and Evil Use , was clear on the issue of naming people and historical events. Moore always maintained that dogs and slaves are named by their masters; free people name themselves. Where did the idea of Black History Month come from?
Did it drop from the skies? Was it conceived in the lab of a mad African scientist? Wrong again. Personally, I'm tired of hearing uninformed people remark: "They give us the coldest and shortest month of the year to celebrate Black History Month. First of all, they didn't give us anything. The great African American historian Carter G.
Woodson, his organization -- the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, which was formed in -- and the masses of African people in the United States and Canada forced the system to recognize the contribution of Africans to the world. Woodson's organization came into existence only 30 years after the Berlin Conference, where European colonial powers carved up Africa like a Thanksgiving turkey.
The Name "Negro", Its Origin and Evil Use
Why did Woodson pick February as the time to commemorate Africa's many gifts to humanity? Black History Week comes each year about the second Sunday in February, the objective being to select the week that will include both February 12, the birth of Abraham Lincoln, and February 14, the date Frederick Douglass calculated to have been his natal day.
Sometimes the celebrations can include one day, in which case Douglass' date gets preference. February never was meant to be the only month African people reflected on their past. Clarke states:. The aim is not to enter upon one week's study of [B]lack people's place in history. Rather, the celebration should represent the culmination of a systematic study of Black people throughout the year. Initially, the observance consisted of public exercises emphasizing the salient facts brought to light by researchers and publications of the association during the first 11 years of its existence.
The observance was widely supported among [B]lack Americans in schools, churches and clubs. Gradually, the movement found support among other ethnic groups and institutions in America and abroad. We've come a long way since Woodson created Negro History Week in His classic book, The Mis-Education of the Negro the inspiration for the title of singer Lauryn Hill's The Mis-Education of Lauryn Hill , is a must read for anyone who wants to be on the right side of history.
The time has come to update Woodson's idea.

The question is history for what? The answer is for liberation. Huge hamburger chains have appropriated images of the great kings and queens of Africa. African people, like all people, have a right to determine who their friends are and who their enemies are.
