 Coloring Pages Black History Month

Coloring Pages Black History Month represents a feeble attempt for the history that has been taught for centuries that over looked or intentionally miss-portrayed the people of African Heritage when it came to history classes and the History text books.  One month a year there is an attempt by some to tell the stories that have been left out and learn about the richness of people who have been ignored.   The point of Coloring pages Black History Month is not a contrast to white history but instead is to tell the stories that some in our society have fought hard to cover up and we must all vigorously tell the stories so that they are never ever forgotten. and hopefully coloring pages black history month will help do that.
