During Black History month we turn our focus to the legacy and contributions of the people of African Descent that have paved the way to give us a better life. One of the best ways to honor the ancestors and those that have come before us is to be the history that has been made. Carry out the legacy of some recent or ancient ancestor making a contribution in your own unique way. For some that may mean expressing yourself through art, music, poetry or creative expression. For others it may mean being a teacher, activist, scholar or politician. It may mean being a fully committed mother or a father and simply giving love and care to a child each day. Whatever your contribution, think of yourself as being a part of history instead of just remembering it.
