    IN THE USA-BLACK HISTORY MONTH IS IN FEBUARY- THE SHORTEST MONTH OF THE YEAR.??
    AND THE UK WE HAVE IT IN, OCTOBER- THE MONTH MOST ASSOCIATIED WITH HALLOWEEN.??

    WHY CAN'T WE GET A DECENT MONTH 2 ACKNOWLEDGE OUR PEOPLE AND THEIR HISTORY.

    (Even though no matter what the month is i wll 4eva take pride in the positive aspects of black history,culture and people.)

    Good question, BUT . . .

    Greetings naija-man . . . how about we forget about wanting a month and take the whole year, every year to celebrate how great Black people are and to commit ourselves to doing something everyday to make our lives better?

    Peace :spinstar:

    Before we got a month, they allowed us a week...

    It's up 2 us 2 forget all about this as being the month 2 reflect on our history & ancestors, & make it a daily celebration.

    Blak History Week was the beginning of our enlightenment, which was spread into a month, because we ached 2 receive more education about us...

    Now we have 2 celebrate Blak History Life...

    Every day, read about a different person in our history, a different time in our history, so we may be able 2 write the pages of our Blak FutureStory.
