February Quotes

This month is Black history month. While I believe every month is black history month because black history is American history. I still wanted to celebrate and represent the great people who make up black history month. The innovators, the rebels and the highly educated people who brought great social revolutions in America. When I was a child, I looked up to the people we learned about during black history month. They were all intelligent and wanted change. They inspired me to do well in school and to always speak my mind. They are my heroes, I found 10 of my favorite quotes. I hope you all enjoy them! Happy Black History Month!!!
