A month where roles become reversed and black people own white people like they are slaves.

The best month of the year when all of the great Black activists, athletes, inventors, scientists, scholars, musicians, poets, authors, architects, explorers, etc throughout history get the most recognition for their achievements. Africans have richest history in the world, as they are the ones who brought Mathematics, Science, Language, Architecture, Cosmetics, Art, Spirituality, Folklore, and so many other things to the world. And as for Black Americans, we are the ones who built America, and not just through free labor via slavery. It's so important for people to learn about historical figures such as Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Malcolm X, Lewis Latimer (inventor of the carbon filament used in light bulbs), Benjamin Banneker (scientist, Almanac author, and farmer who built the first American clock and assisted in creating the city layout for Washington D.C.), Juan Garrido (first person in the Americas to cultivate Wheat), Garrett Morgan (inventor of the Traffic Light and the Gas Mask), W.E.B. DuBois (Pan Africanist civil rights activist who co-founded the NAACP), Kenneth Dunkley (inventor of 3D Glasses), George Crum (inventor of Potato Chips), and so many other monumental figures! Coincidentally, this month corresponds with many other events like National Heart Month, the Super Bowl, the NBA All Star Game, the Oscars, the Grammy's, and Valentine's Day.
"I gotta say, Black History Month is my favorite time of the year."

Black History Month, n.

1. A sorely needed opportunity to raise awareness of the history of black Americans among people of all colors.

2. The shortest month of the year.
Black History Month is important not just for Black people to understand their own people's centuries-long struggle for liberation, but for all people to recognize the problems that institutionalized racism and skin color privilege has caused and continues to cause in American society.

A month devoted to African-Americans. A month that is well deserved. Some White people get angry because Blacks get a month all about them. Well, they really shouldnt because White people get all the rest of the year. In school, we learn about history. They should just rename is White history, because that is all we learn about. White people. I think that if someone is mad that Blacks get ONE month, they are very selfish. Black History Month is just the price that Whites have to pay for their ancestors being racist!
Black History Month, the one month that we get to learn about Black History in school!

A month when non-black people are reminded that Black people aren't unproductive. We're black everyday. Besides, technically everyone in the world is black since civilization started in West Africa and spread across the globe before the continents broke apart. Stop being racist because we're all black anyway. Gosh
Black History Month Fun Fact: You wouldn't even know this, but Dwayne Mc Duffie, a black animator created Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Ben 10.
