February1-5

February is a month chocked full of special awareness. First of all it is Black History Month and I, personally, think it is a shame that a month (and the shortest at that) has to be set aside for black history. If the contributions of African Americans were taught as part of American History then a special month would not be needed. Black Americans should be included in the teaching of all our history, but this is not the case. Therefore, we need to learn and acknowledge those contributions this month and remember them throughout the year.

Here are some others we may have missed:

  1. You are so right. There have been so many trailblazers who have been ignored and continue to be. Simply setting aside a month does not give them their due. Medicine, science, nature, law… The list is endless and we still have far to go.
