About the Editor

Black History Rocks began by Brittany Sessions, a native of Atlanta, Georgia. Brittany is a history enthusiast with a concentration in African American history. As a young girl, she unmasked a whole new world of people and events that she had not learned about in school. Those things fascinated her and propelled her on a journey that would later include obtaining both a Bachelor and Master of Arts in African American Studies.

 

The Creation of Black History Rocks:

Black History Rocks is Brittany’s passion and a manifestation of her desire to share everything she has learned about Black history. The omission of accurate historical information on African Americans in traditional education settings led her to find a new avenue to disperse information. Through this platform, she will share historical sites and informative knowledge that will challenge you to think critically about yourself, where you’ve come from, where you’re going, and the society in which we live.

“If a race has no history, if it has no worthwhile tradition, it becomes a negligible factor in the thought of the world, and it stands in danger of being exterminated.”
