Black History Month 2020 - Unite the union

Black History Month 's tale starts in 1915, half a century after slavery in the United States was repealed by the Thirteenth Amendment. Newly freed black men made great electoral strides in the Progressive Restoration era that followed the Civil War, gaining office in Southern state legislatures and even Congress. The Southern reaction was rapid and characterised by the introduction of "black codes" aimed at suppressing black voters, sparking a call for standardised, nationwide voting rights legislation. With activists such as Frederick Douglas working alongside Elizabeth Cady Stanton to win the freedom to vote for everyone, the women's rights movement developed out of the abolitionist movement. With the passage of the nineteenth amendment in 1920, the aim was met. Black History Month was then first launched in London in 1987 where the aim was for the local community to challenge racism and educate themselves and others about the history that was not taught in schools.
