History is often reduced to a handful of memorable moments and events. In Black history, those events often include courageous stories like those of The Underground Railroad and historic moments like the famous “I Have a Dream” speech by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. But these are only a few of the significant and important events to know and remember.
In an effort to honor this expansive and growing history, Black History Month was established by way of a weekly celebration in February known as “Negro History Week” by historian Carter G. Woodson. But just as Black history is more than a month, so too are the numerous events and figures that are often overlooked during it. What follows is a list of some of those “lesser known” moments and facts in Black history. To learn more on Black History click the link below to read 10 little known facts about BLACK HISTORY!!!

According to NPR, "the top civil rights official at the Department of Health and Human Services is creating the Division of Conscience and Religious Freedom to protect doctors, nurses and other health care workers who refuse to take part in procedures like abortion or treat certain people because of moral or religious objections." These new protections, in service to a very broad definition of religious liberty, might be expanded to allow health workers to refuse some services to gay, lesbian and transgender people and other marginalized groups in that the current administration, "understands religious liberty to override anti discrimination principles."  Visit NPR here for more details.
