Black History Month: A Chance to Learn and Grow - The Note House

Black History Month: A Chance to Learn and Grow

Did you all catch the Grammy Awards show last night? The tribute to 50 years of hip hop was nothing short of nostalgic, and I was grinning ear to ear from start to finish!

Black History Month: A Time to Reflect and Act

February holds significant meaning as it is the month dedicated to celebrating and acknowledging the innumerable contributions of African Americans to the United States. It's a time to reflect, to learn, and to put our support behind the black community in any way we can.

The month was chosen to honor two key figures in the fight for equality: Abraham Lincoln, who was born on February 12 and issued the Emancipation Proclamation, and Frederick Douglass, an African American abolitionist, author, and orator who was born on February 14.

As a white small business owner, I am acutely aware that Black History Month is not about me. However, I believe in the power of small actions and the ripple effect they can have. Here's how I aim to shine my light on the importance of this month:

Supporting Black-Owned Businesses

One of the most practical ways to show support is by purchasing from black-owned businesses. It's a simple act that can have a significant impact.

Learning About Noteworthy Black Figures and Their Contributions

Knowledge is power. By educating ourselves about black figures who've made significant contributions to society, we can better appreciate and understand their impact.

Donating to Charities That Support Anti-Racism, Equity, and Equality

Financial contributions to charities that tirelessly work towards anti-racism, equity, and equality can make a big difference.

Reading and Sharing Books by Black Authors

Books have the power to broaden our horizons and deepen our understanding. The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison, for instance, left a profound impact on me during my college years.

Product Spotlight: Hip Hop Stationery Design

I couldn't let this month go by without bringing your attention to one of my personal favorites from my stationery collection! This fun hip hop stationery design is a delightful throwback to my high school days in the 80's.

I can still remember blasting Run DMC and Whodini while washing my best friend's car in her driveway, much to the chagrin of her dad. This product not only celebrates the vibrant culture and history of hip hop but also serves as a reminder of the connective power of music.

In this Black History Month, let's all do our part to celebrate, learn, and support. And remember, even the smallest actions can make a big difference.
