Black History March by Anthony Bila.
Black History March is an ongoing project series that seeks to really commemorate and remember various time periods in African history through words, motion picture and still photography. The body of work serves as an ode to black history. Each volume of work will speak to a different time period, a different place, different people but all African. Always. I purposefully launched this project a month after the Black History Month actually occurred, it’s traditionally held in February but I wanted to dispel the notion that black history needs a ‘special month’, the shortest month of all no less, dedicated to it as commemoration and remembrance of the rich incredibly vast history of Africa and it’s peoples.
My thoughts about black history are that it should be venerated just as any other significant part of history is, at every given opportunity. The name of the series is a double entendre. March being the month we are in and march in the sense that we soldier on, as a people moving forward but never forgetting to reflect and look back at where we have come from. Something I believe we should all do. Anthony tells ShutYourAperture.
