Exploring Black History

February, as a month, I feel is both much aligned and has a lot going for it. I mean, for sure, it’s smack dab in the middle of winter (for those of us who live in the great northeast, at least), and it tends to be cold and gray and stormy. Sure, but February is also the shortest month of the calendar year (so we’re that much closer to spring once it’s over!), and it is Black History month, Heart Health month, President’s Day, and the Hallmark-created Valentine’s Day. (oh, and let’s not forget Galentine’s Day…) PLUS, in February, there is National Pizza Day, National Love Your Pet Day, National Wine Day, National Margarita Day, and National Call In Sick to Work Day (I just made that last one up).
