A Celebration of Black History

Show Summary

A Celebration of Black History is a commemorative list of thirty-three video clips that celebrate many of the achievements of African-Americans in our nation's history. From the 2008 election of Barack Obama as the first African-American President of the United States (NBC News Calls Election for Barack Obama) to the civil rights struggle led by Martin Luther King, Jr., (Rise of Martin Luther King, Jr.) and Rosa Parks (Arrest of Rosa Parks Sparks Boycott), this tribute details many of the defining events in the history of the United States through interviews and news stories. Black history is a rich history that is woven tightly through the fabric of American culture. A Celebration of Black History profiles many of the people who paved the way for not just African-Americans, but all minorities in today's society. The excerpt of James Meredith's return to the University of Mississippi is particularly compelling (James Meredith Remembers). February is black history month, but A Celebration of Black History teaches us that history is all around us and within us, all the time.moreless
