Today marks the end of the month dedicated to black people. October 2020 was labelled Black History Month and it was a month that many of us tried to celebrate, recognise and appreciate the impact of many black people who contributed immensely to the society and left one legacy or the other, through their words, their beliefs or their deeds over the years.
Much has been said of these great individuals and their position in history can not be overstated. This month has been that reminder of what qualities black people did have and how far the fight for equality had come.
But there also are black people in the present day, who are, again through their actions and words, gradually working their way into the annals of black history, and who are worthy of being appreciated and celebrated.
And today is for them, the present that makes us remember the past, that the future will be blessed with memories of their deeds and inspire more excellence in the black race.
