I must issue the most sincerest of apologies for it taking me literally half of February to get myself together and begin my Black History Month series for 2017. I had an extremely busy past two weeks, and though it is no excuse, I just could not muster the energy nor the courage to write on this blog.
With each day that passed, I felt even more guilty for choosing to wait instead of grinding. It is a flaw of mine, that if I am not feeling it 100%, I will take a back seat until I feel that my heart will truly come through with what I have planned.
I had originally planned to post every other day in the month of February for Black History Month. As half the month is gone, I will be posting daily. Now, I don’t foresee this month getting much easier than the past two weeks, I just have my heart in the right place now. Which means that there may be some posts which go up in March because life happens. And I have to say that I think that is 100% a-okay! Black History Month is the shortest month of the year. It is a cold month, it is not a very sunny month, and it is shared with other holidays such as Valentine’s Day and President’s Day, on which we often forget the struggles that we fought as a people. So, we should celebrate in January, and March, and all the other months of the year, albeit probably a little differently.
Normally, I would use this space to post a list of what I have planned for the month. However, since everything is going to come up so fast in these coming days, I think I am just going to make you wait and see what I have up my sleeve to love and honor black people who have made a difference for other black people.
