Black History Month

The month of February is celebrated as Black History Month. I always look forward to learning about notable people and events from the past and present who helped shape the world we know today. I have been visiting many websites around the internet that have feature stories, music, fashion, and more during this month's celebration.

One such website is TheBlackTechReport which has been featuring "28 Days of Black History in Technology." I have learned a great deal about important African Americans and their higher education goals, inventions and patents that are in use today. Take a look at the website and I think you will find the features fascinating.

Also, GQ Magazine has a slide show called "Birth of Cool: 20 Black Style Pioneers" which features some very stylish African Americans. Over at Essence Magazine, click on their Black History Month button and find many great reads, galleries, and more. Plus, there is an exciting feature on "The 25 Most Influential Black American Leaders of All Time" on theGrio.

The month of February does not have to be the only time we celebrate black history. We can learn about it everyday!
