You might not know it, but it’s Italian-American History Month
Unlike other months, which get a lot more publicity, October is actually “Italian-American History Month“as it says on nationaltoday.com:
âRecognize the contributions and achievements of Italian Americans. More than 26 million Americans of Italian descent currently reside in the United States, making it the seventh largest ethnic group in the United States. the second Monday of the month. Italian-American Heritage Month celebrates the distinguished cultural contributions of Americans of Italian lineage.
I had been advocating for a long time that each nationality and ethnicity had a month to determine if we could all learn what each of our ancestors went through to be a part of this great country as well as the contributions of our people, we would all get along, so alright better.
What is surprising is that we haven’t heard more about Italian History Month since we heard so much about the cancellation of “Columbus Day”, which means so much to the Italian-American people. . It would be nice to also publicize our month. Perhaps with a series of public service announcements about the great contributions of Italian Americans to American history, which all ethnic Americans should be focusing on.
Italian-American History Month also came as a surprise to many of my Facebook followers who I asked about the cool of being Italian-American in New Jersey.
Gail Morrone, from Union City, summed it up best.
âI think every Italian will relate to what I believe. As I have never lived anywhere other than New Jersey, this could be our belief. The most important thing for anyone of Italian descent, regardless the generation of the family. Yes, we have the best food and the most amazing entertainment such as the President’s, but family is the most important. And, as is always the case, at any family reunion, there is never enough food ð Ciao “
âI didn’t hear that. News 12 promoted Hispanic Heritage Month, which is an NJ news station, but nothing said about Italian Heritage Month. Plus, they took us Columbus Day and replaced it with Indigenous Day. So who is promoting this month as Italian Heritage Month ?? Only us Italians of course !!! “
âStrange hasn’t heard anything about Italian Heritage Month on any of the major networks, unlike other months where that’s all I hear, including PSA.
