My Favorite Month – February

packed to leave

The Great Migration

This is my favorite month. February is designated as Black History Month. This is the month that I might found out something new about my history. Unfortunately, some of our Black history is not written down anywhere because the oppressor does not want to be reminder of their cruel behavior. So there are those who hunt and peck through historic documents and other elements to find our history. Yes it is intertwined with America’s history.

So, over the next month I will be blogging about the Great Migration that happened during 1910 to 1970. What is the Great Migration? The Great Migration is the decisive move of 6 million Blacks from the caste system of the South to opportunities in the North for citizenry.
