Today, February 1st, begins the Black History Month celebrations for 2011. When I was in school the 1970s, Black History month was only a week. Unfortunately, I don't remember what I learned during this week long celebrations. Later, it became a month long celebration. But there are some people, including African Americans like actor Morgan Freeman, who feel that there is not a need for Black History Month. I feel the special celebrations and recognitions in February of African American achievement are great and should continue, but as a blogger and genealogist, I celebrate Black History everyday.
What do you think of Morgan Freeman's comments about Black History Month?
