"Three seconds. That's how long we had from the moment we drifted off the road until the truck hit the pillar at 85mph," Arika Stovall wrote in a post on Facebook.

Stovall, a student at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee, and her boyfriend, Hunter Hanks, were on their way back to Nashville from Jacksonville, Florida on New Year's Day when they crashed into a concrete bridge pillar. They don't remember what happened in the moments before the crash.

The Toyota Tundra pickup truck they were traveling in was totaled. Hanks' head was plunged through the car's windshield. Stovall underwent a panic attack. The crash could have been fatal.

And yet, the two survived with little physical damage.

"(There were) no broken bones, concussions that lasted not even 24 hours, no internal damage and just a few stitches in my knee and Hunter's face," Stovall wrote. "I don't know how we lived through that," she told WTVF

Shortly after the crash, Stovall posted a photo on Facebook with a caption explaining the accident, the effects and her disbelief that the two had survived.

In the photo, Hanks is leaning over Stovall, who is lying in a hospital bed. Both are wearing neck braces and clearly wounded, but they're smiling at each other.

"Embrace the struggles and the joys of this life," Stovall wrote. "Without a doubt, it's a miracle we're alive, but more than that it's simply God's plan for us. We're so grateful for this wreck and all it will do in our lives. We are blessed to be okay."

Black History Month - how it began

Americans have recognized black history annually since 1926, first as "Negro History Week" and later as "Black History Month." What you might not know is that black history had barely begun to be studied-or even documented-when the tradition originated. Although blacks have been in America at least as far back as colonial times, it was not until the 20th century that they gained a respectable presence in the history books.

Blacks Absent from History Books

We owe the celebration of Black History Month, and more importantly, the study of black history, to Dr. Carter G. Woodson. Born to parents who were former slaves, he spent his childhood working in the Kentucky coal mines and enrolled in high school at age twenty. He graduated within two years and later went on to earn a Ph.D. from Harvard. The scholar was disturbed to find in his studies that history books largely ignored the black American population-and when blacks did figure into the picture, it was generally in ways that reflected the inferior social position they were assigned at the time.

Established Journal of Negro History

Woodson, always one to act on his ambitions, decided to take on the challenge of writing black Americans into the nation's history. He established the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (now called the Association for the Study of Afro-American Life and History) in 1915, and a year later founded the widely respected Journal of Negro History. In 1926, he launched Negro History Week as an initiative to bring national attention to the contributions of black people throughout American history.

Woodson chose the second week of February for Negro History Week because it marks the birthdays of two men who greatly influenced the black American population, Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. However, February has much more than Douglass and Lincoln to show for its significance in black American history. For example:

  • February 23, 1868:W. E. B. DuBois, important civil rights leader and co-founder of the NAACP, was born.
  • February 3, 1870:The 15th Amendment was passed, granting blacks the right to vote.
  • February 25, 1870:The first black U.S. senator, Hiram R. Revels (1822-1901), took his oath of office.
  • February 12, 1909:The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was founded by a group of concerned black and white citizens in New York City.
  • February 1, 1960:In what would become a civil-rights movement milestone, a group of black Greensboro, N.C., college students began a sit-in at a segregated Woolworth's lunch counter.
  • February 21, 1965:Malcolm X, the militant leader who promoted Black Nationalism, was shot to death by three Black Muslims.
