“It Ain’t Over!”

Just because the end of February is approaching, and America and Canada will end its celebration of “Black History Month” I want you to know that It Ain’t Over. The celebration of Black History is Never Over!” As [Ana Mari Cauce] stated, “February is a moment to celebrate Black History, but not as something to be taken down from a high shelf, dusted off, admired, and then put away. Black History Month was always about Black History year-round.” It’ Ain’t Over!

God’s promise is to give us hope and a future. He has predestined our greatness, for He said in [Jeremiah 29:11] “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not harm you. To give you hope and a future. The Celebration of Black History, “It Ain’t Never Over!” 

So, “If you hear the dogs, keep going. If you see the torches in the woods, keep going. If there’s shouting after you, keep going. Don’t ever stop. Keep going. If you want a taste of freedom, keep going.” [Harriet Tubman]. 

“I am the dream and the hope of the slave. Leaving behind nights of terror and fear, I rise into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear. I rise bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave. I am the dream and the hope of the slave. I rise, I rise, I rise.” [Still, I Rise – Maya Angelo].

We are the generations that our foremothers and forefathers prayed for, endured for, died for. Let us continue to celebrate black heritage and history, “lest we forget” who we are, where we came from, and where we hope to go!

“Although some people say we’ve got a lot of malice, some say it’s a lot of nerve, but I say we won’t quit moving until we get what we deserve. We have been buked and we have been scorned. We’ve been treated bad, talked about as sure as you’re born, but just as sure as it takes two eyes to make a pair, ha, brother we can’t quit until we get our share. Say it Loud: I’m black and I’m proud!” [Say It Loud: I’m Black and I’m Proud – James Brown].

“Sit. Reflect. Revere. Respect. The strength of our ancestors. The power in our veins. Honor their sacrifices. The freedoms accomplished through pain. May we never forget that powerful grit. May our passionate resolve NEVER refrain.”– [ Untitled – Kristen Janine]

Celebrating Black History” Today, Tomorrow, Now and Forever! “It Ain’t Over!”
