Black History Month
Today kicks off Black History Month. Each year February is a month to focus on the history and achievements of African Americans. This year one good place to do that is on the website of this History Channel, which offers an interactive timeline of black history milestones. This is also a time to take a look at the website of the N.A.A.C.P. You can also find information about the official theme of this year’s Black History Month—The History of Black Economic Empowerment—from site of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. Happy Black History Month!
