What Black History Means to Me is‌ ~What Black History means to me is that if one struggles do to a factor that they aren’t in control of, then they most likely won’t try to make the change to stop such occurrences. But if a whole race struggles, then they are morally obligated to try to end the diversities as well as all spirits causing such feelings toward your race in order to make a way for your kin, to die knowing that they have made a difference & to live the rest of their lives without fearing the wrath of another race.~ K.R.R.~
