Why Are We Celebrating This?

Before I get too deep into February I just wanted to give you a brief history of black history month. I attend an HBCU and Black History Month is really highlighted here in almost every class. My teacher, a very eclectic, one-of-a-kind lady showed us this video in our Creative Writing Class.  I learned things I had never known and actually understood how Black History Month came to be. Hope you take a moment to watch this video and get a deeper understanding of Black History Month.
