People often think of February as the month of love, complete with boxes of heart-shaped chocolate and teddy bears, but behind the lovey-dovey-ness that is Valentine’s Day, February also brings with it the month-long celebration that is Black History Month.

Black History Month is the “annual celebration by African Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of blacks in U.S. history” (History.com).
