Commemorating the memory of the legends in the history of the African diaspora, ‘Black History Month’ has been celebrated all over the United States and Canada from February 1st to March 1st every year.

“In our family we celebreate Black History all day, everyday. 24/7. 365! Not just for #BlackHistoryMonth. Why? Well… honoring our history is about remembering all of who we are and who we’ve been. The changes, the victories, the humanity and the spirit! So here’s some of #MyBlackHistory.
This is a photo of me and my maternal grandmother, Isabelle Moss. She came to the United States from Jamaica through Ellis Island in 1924. Whenever I am in the presence of the Statue of Liberty I wonder what it must have been like for her, as a young woman, to see that towering symbol of freedom as she sailed into the harbors of NYC. I’m gonna share some of my favorite family photos throughout the rest of the month and I hope you will join me in honoring your Black History too, the history that made us!,” posted the actress.
Wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans, the snapshot demonstrating Miss.Washington resting on her forehead over the shoulders of her maternal grandmother seems to be one of the most loveliest of all ‘Black History’ moments till the day! She took a moment to remember her evolution, her roots and her family resilience which made her history a fruitful and sensible one!
