"SHINE BRIGHT LIKE A DIAMOND."
BHM evolved from “Negro History Week,” initiated by noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Every U.S. president, (since 1976) has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month.
Being Black is not a pre-requisite for celebrating Black History.
Black History is deeply entrenched in American History, and thus has significance that surpasses color or geographical boundaries.
To honor this month and expand your literary horizons, today's post features 6 Black Bloggers you'll want to add to your blog roll this year.
'Cause that's how I roll. ;-)
If time permits, I hope you'll visit their sites, sample what they have to offer and be enriched in the process.
HERE ARE THESE BODACIOUS BLOGGERS FOR 2019,
IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER:
MONIQUE @ DIVAS CAN COOK
Monique is "cooking" literally and figuratively! Her site has beautiful, delicious recipes, (photos and videos) to please almost any palate. Monique is on a mission to show today's progressive woman that it's okay to be "liberated" and love being in the kitchen too.
Stop by and say hi!
SYBIL CHAVIS @ POSSIBILITY OF TODAY
Chavis and her husband decided to engage in a simple act that had major impact. They vowed to give up complaining for 40 days. This ushered in a new way of thinking and a new way of life. Read how having a paradigm shift and a positive mental state can transform your relationships, your career, and your overall perspective. You'll find a lot of interesting topics, resources, and posts worth pondering here. Imagine the possibilities!
MEGAN @ BLACKFREELANCE.COM
As the title reflects, Megan educates, advocates and advances writers of color through tips, tools, strategies and industry related info on her site. Actually, color aside, her blog is a great space for ANY scribe seeking to "end employer dependence" and make a difference with words.
KELLY SANTANA BANKS@ REVIEWS BY THE BANKShttps://www.reviewsbythebanks.com/
Kelly is a children’s author, freelance writer, educator, and yogi. When she is not “on duty,” she loves to indulge in the next best reading, hit the gym, and spend time with family and friends exploring unbeknownst locations. The Reviews By the Banks blog has some really helpful, engaging reads and reviews for writers of all genres. Kelly and I were "introduced" initially by way of an interview she conducted with me last year; I became a regular reader from there.
