Beyonce Giselle Knowles here kicks off the celebration of Black History Month as OUR ROOTS characteristic.
Let us celebrate our pride, our joy, the successes and achievements of many who have gone before us, those in the present and those to come.
Not just in February, but all year round, every year. Happy Birthday – Black History Matters.

OUR ROOTS 2nd volume is a 108 page color illustrated book compilation documenting black history and which is the result of further research during the pandemic lockdowns we have been going through in the UK and of course globally. And staying within that has allowed me to write, illustrate, and color many unsung heroes and heroines, young and old, past and present, people, places and events, and the future. The illustrations will also inspire many aspiring young black artists in the field of education. Part of it OUR ROOTS series have appeared on EURWEB over the years, including new material. Indispensable on coffee tables and in public and school libraries.
