I came up with the idea to create something legendary for Black and Minority women. I had an interest in creating something more historic that would uplfift minority women
So, I decided that we would create April as International Black Women’s History Month and embrace every achievement varying from domestic engineering to medicine to politics to inventions to entrepreneurship and everything in between. I had no idea that Black and Minority women had contributed so much to this world, because most of it is not taught in schools.
In this case, minority women refer to women of African descent. This includes Afro-Australian, Afro-Latin, Afro-European and so much more. Black Women’s History Month is not just for Black Women in the U.S., but also extends to the Diaspora.
Black Women’s History Month is to embrace achievements, build understanding and awareness, and to celebrate the rich history of the past, present and future generations of not only Black Women but Minority Women who are the Descendants of Africa to include: African American, Afro-Austrailian, Afro-Mexican, Afro-Latino, Afro- Argentine, Afro-Brazilian, Afro-European, Afro Bolivian, Afro-Colombian, Afro-Guyanese, Afro-Peruvian, Afro-Bahamian, Afro-Barbadian, Afro-Caribbean, Afro-Cuban, Afro-Dominican, Afro-Puerto Rican, Afro-Saint Lucian, Afro-Trinidadian and Tobagonian, Afro-Vincentian, Afro-Asian, Italians of African descent, Afro-Greeks, Afro-French, Afro-Germans, Black British. Black Women’s History Month is about unifying the community by promoting visibility, education, empowerment, contribution and achievement which positively impacts communities across the globe.
Black and Minority Women of African Descent are a lot like Black orchids. Black Orchids are a symbol of power and absolute authority. It is generally known that black is an imposing color, symbolizing authority and submission and, combined with the luxurious beauty of the Orchid, the Black Orchid came to symbolize great power. April is International Black Women's History Month, Because Black Women's History Matters!
