Today we celebrated International Day of People with Disabilities. It is a global event which promotes equality for people with disability and celebrates their achievements. It has been celebrated every year since 1981.
It is also a day to promote awareness of the challenges faced by over 1 billion people living with disabilities, and the role communities and societies play in breaking down barriers to inclusion

Black History Month was created by Carter G. Woodson in 1926. He aimed to combat racism by educating white students about black contributions to American life which were commonly downplayed, ignored or hidden.
