I’m curious. I have personally had enough of the “traditional celebration” of black history month. I think it would go a long way if we dropped the recycled stories of the common African American heroes in favor of an open dialog about racism. I also think we would all benefit form learning about the ancestry of African Americans prior to slavery and the 1960’s. The celebration of it just seems disingenuous. It also implies that African Americans are excluded from American history. Shouldn’t we be striving to have American history include everyone?
