Black History Month: Be A History Maker

Black History Month: Be A History Maker
There are those who watch what happens, those who make things happen and those who don’t have clue to what happened!
By: Pam Perry

African Americans once had a lot civil rights giants among us: Dr. Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, and Coretta Scott King. They were people who “made things happen.” We miss these heroes.

But we must make and celebrate new ones. How? We must do more than just teach our children about history, but teach them how to be history makers and world changers! We must motivate the next generation to make an impact on the lives of others.

When we inspire youth to dream, to visualize a better world, to be action oriented and to help others – we will all have success. This generation must impart strong values into the next.

It’s good to highlight the achievements and applaud the milestones in Black history month – but it’s time we get serious about training up leaders for the next generation and look at what our legacy will be to them.

Have we done our part? Are we just watching what happens, complaining about what’s happening, or making plans to make some things happen! Make it your mission to be a history maker, world changer and inspire others to do the same.

Bottom Line: “Remember that our cause is one, and that we must help each other, if we would succeed” Frederick Douglas. The millennium version: Teamwork makes the dream work!

  1. We all have an opportunity to become history makers. Educators, authors, community leaders, garbage collectors, cooks, anyone that has the ability to pour love, inspiration, and hope into anothers life can be a history maker. It's not always about national accolades, notariety and front page news. Give whatever you have to give to make your community a better place. This is what true history is really made of.
