    February is Black History Month in the United States. It originated in 1926 with the efforts of the Association for the Study of African-American Life and History, founded by historian Carter G. Woodson and the minister Jesse E. Moorland.

    Black History Month started as a week-long commemoration of the history of and accomplishments by African-Americans and peoples of African descent. It was held during the second week of February to coincide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln.

    This week-long commemoration evolved into a full month, and in 1976, President Gerald Ford officially recognised Black History Month, telling the public “to seize the opportunity to honour the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavour throughout our history.”

Moreover, South Asian and African-American communities have meaningfully collaborated and allied with one another to fight oppression.

    Despite this history of collaboration, the reality remains that South Asians continue to perpetuate anti-Black racism (also called anti-blackness) against African-Americans and peoples of African descent, both in the United States and in South Asia.
