First Day of Black History Month

MyJoi Holloway

The month of February is widely known for the affectionate holiday, Valentine’s Day. This short month is also known for the infamous Black History month.
During Black History month, all the African American influencers, inventors, etc. are celebrated for all their contributions. Some people love the idea of a month strictly being about us. Others feel as if Black History Month is a waste.  This isn’t because of what it’s celebrating but cause of how it’s portrayed.
Some feel as if Black History should be treated as American History. Basically asking, “Why is Black History made a big deal only one month out of the year?” This topic could cause an interesting debate.
