Conclusion

It’s important for us to also understand that the phrase ‘Black Lives Matter’ simply refers to the notion that there’s a specific vulnerability for African Americans that needs to be addressed. It’s not meant to suggest that other lives don’t matter. It’s to suggest that other folks aren’t experiencing this particular vulnerability. Barak Obama
History is a weird thing. You cannot get rid of it. You are part of it. You have to learn from it. You cannot escape it. Above all, every action of yours could make difference in the world if you are determined enough. This is what I would suggest learning from Black history and take inspiration from it. History should never be forgotten those who made the right steps during it should be remembered and those who were misguided during the journey should be learned from it. This is what this month teaches us to keep making the present glorious so history could become glorious too.
