"Black History Month, begun as Negro History Week in 1926, provides a way for the nation to review the history of black Americans and acknowledge their contributions to American life." ~ pg. 3
Many African Americans come to our attention—either for the first time or as a history lesson—during Black History Month. African American History Month Daily Devotions 2015 is a great educational read for families especially during February. It is a great supplement to teach children and remind adults about African Americans that played a significant role in different areas of life. A. Philip Randolph, Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglas and Dr. Carter G. Woodson are just a few of the people featured in the devotions. Most of them have been issued postage stamps by the U.S. Postal Service. Each daily devotional begins with a scripture and ends with a short prayer.
Today's America is drastically different than during the days of MLK but this book of daily devotions will help us to overcome!
