Black History Month Awareness From Talib Kweli

Warner Music

As we are just days away from the start of Black History Month, I felt it appropriate to write this morning about how this month-long celebration came into being.Africans have recognized Black history annually since 1926, first as “Negro History Week” and later as “Black History Month.” At the time of its origin, Black history had not been documented or studied. Although the descendants of Africans have been in America long before colonial times, it was not until the 20th century that blacks gained respect to be placed in the history books.

I ran across an interesting interview that rapper Talib Kweli recently did on his take of Black History Month. As you may or may not know, Talib is one of the most conscious rappers that we have in music today and truly understands that a lot of our African brothers and sisters are asleep and unaware of their African core/center in this country.
