Black History or American History: What’s the Difference?

Gwen's Take

I’ve often wondered what it meant that the month we set aside to take special note of African American achievement is the one that’s usually only 28 days long.

As a child, I took that kind of personally. As an adult, I have another view. Black history is worth appreciating in a society that overlooks minority accomplishment. But it is also American history.
