  1. This is a great article. I am having a tough February because while at the beginning of the school year we had Morgan State’s drum corp come for our spirit day rally and I just assumed that it was a preview if what our school would present during Black History Month I have been truly disappointed. We are NOT publicly and openly celebrationg the contributions of Black people here. In my opinion this means that we in the high priced private schools continue the tradition of not educating our students about Black History during February or any other month (for those who believe that it is happening every month and therefore we don’t need Black Hisory Month any longer)

    • Why can’t we just have American history, every month? Why does it have to be color coordinated? Should we have white, catholic, heterosexual history month? I thought all men were created equal.
