During the Black History Month, America, the Blacks in America and concerned people around the World pay tribute to Black figures, activists, politicians, and unsung heroes and heroines for the role they played in the U.S. history and their contributions to building the United States of America.
The proposed three themes for this year's Black History Month - progress, setbacks, and tragedies - need to be brought to the forefront, even as the times remain tough for Americans, in general and the Blacks community in particular, with continued COVID-19 pandemic that has already killed, as of the beginning of February, 2022, 886,000 people, with Black Americans disproportionately impacted, and the increasing racial extremism as highlighed by the January 6, 2021 riots with Confederate flags at the U.S. Capitol, the on-going challenges against the Voting Rights, and the banning of teaching Critical race theory in public schools.

Critical race theory, or CRT, is the perspective that any analysis of American society must take into account the history of racism and how race has shaped attitudes, institutions, justice, corporations and others.
