Influencer KevOnStage posted a video of his son sharing his unpopular opinion that history class should not be required. Spoiler alert, this young man had some valid points. It sparked some thought of how important teaching the past has to be for a bright future. You know the saying, "If we don't learn from our past, we are doomed to repeat it."
We should never stop learning about African American history and beyond. There's so much richness in our history. However, I propose that we should also look for opportunities to create history. We should adopt the spirit of innovation and freedom to create opportunities to make an impact. We should be looking to make history for our children's children to be proud.
Even though Serena Williams did not create the game of tennis, she has made history as a black female tennis player. Williams is arguably the best tennis player ever, regardless of race or gender.
As black Christian influencers, we are problem solvers. We should be looking for our calling and purpose to help solve problems to glorify God. We should be creating black history and solutions that change the world.
Are you looking for opportunities to create new black history moments? Let's remember the past, but consider looking forward and claim your place in history.
