More on Black History Month!

How do people feel about Black History Month:
There are those who feel it's unfair to set aside a month celebrating the history of one race. Some feel that celebrating black history (separate from American history) insinuates the idea that African Americans are not Americans, and their history is set apart from mainstream culture. But others say that black history is important as long as there is racism, unfairness, and a lack of understanding of black culture, there is a place for Black History Month.

Ways to celebrate Black History Month:
No matter what your background, everyone can celebrate the importance of Black History. We can celebrate the achievements and inventions of black people, and discover someone who has contributed something that is important to you. Find a way to commemorate these achievements that affect your life every day, whether though art, film, literature, music, education, civil rights, sports, or even food!
