Although February has been recognized by the United States as an annual celebration of African American’s achievements throughout the nation, the shortest month of the year isn’t nearly long enough to capture the essence of everything that we are. This is why BH 365 created a U.S. history textbook and curriculum, developed by Dr. Walter Milton Jr. and Dr. Joel Freeman, to document the unique stories of Black persons, groups, and cultures in North America, beginning in Ancient Africa continuing to modern events and movements. Dr. Milton Jr., who previously served as a teacher and school principal, said it was important for them to begin the book in Ancient Africa because they want people to know that Black history doesn’t start at slavery.
