Black History Month 2016 by Cheryl Holloway

Black History Month 2016_Meme

Famous and Not-So-Famous African-American Women in Black History

Fact: Carter G. Woodson, a Harvard-trained historian, had hopes to raise awareness of African American’s contributions to civilization and announced Negro History Week in 1925. The event was first celebrated during a week in February 1926. It has evovled into Black History Month.

Black History Month honors the contributions of African Americans to United States history. Today, I want to also raise awareness and provide a short list of famous and not-so-famous African-American Women in Black History. We all have heard of the famous women, but very few have heard of the not-so-famous women. I want to provide a learning resource for Black History Month 2016.

Marian Anderson sang at the New York Metropolitan Opera in 1955.

Matilda Sissiereta Jones sang at New York’s Carnegie Hall, which opened in 1891, in 1892.

Phillis Wheatley, a poet, published a book of poetry, Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral, on September 1, 1773.

Margaret Walker, a poet, published her poem, For My People, which won a Yale Award in 1942. She later published her book, Jubilee, in 1966.

Dorothy Dandridge, actress, was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role in 1954. She played in Carmen Jones.

Did You Know? In 1663, Maryland passed a law under which free white women would lose their freedom, if they married a black slave, and under which the children of white women and black men became slaves.

I hope this short blog post has provided some resources of African-American Women as contributors to Black History. Throughout the month of February, I will spotlight various books for Black History Month. They will have this image on the page.

Celebrate Black History Month

Thanks for Celebrating Black History Month with me.
