When we talk about black history if your parents or grandparents immigrated to the United States from anywhere that's considered to be the colored world, so Asia or Africa or South America, then most likely it happened after the 1960s. And the reason why that is, is because America didn't open up immigration to the colored world until public consciousness towards color people change and that's after the civil rights struggle. And so our very presence in the United States is directly indebted to the African American community.
