Celebrate Black History Month by Fighting for Justice and Equity

Olivia Alperstein

February is Black History Month. One month is hardly enough to celebrate all the immense contributions of Black Americans to our society, to our nation's story, and to the fight for justice and equity. Many Americans still do not know the full history of the Civil Rights Movement, and many Americans do not know the extent to which that struggle for freedom and justice continues today.

It is not surprising that there are no comments to this piece. The Commondreams readership is entirely too white. And so as it has been since the1960s, we are only left with Jews (like Ms. Alperstein) as the only white people speaking out against racism.

White and sometimes it feels like limited to folks living in progressive bubbles.
