This is a great and interesting article. Why does it have to be called "Black History Moment"?

Would a similar article be named "White History Moment"?

Give it some thought!

Because Feb 1st is the beginning of Black History Month. You'll be seeing these type of stories in the papers and on TV for the rest of February.

Quoted from an internet article "How did Black History Month start? During the 1920ís an African American named Carter G. Woodson, who was the son of former slaves, created and promoted Negro History Week. When Woodson became a high school teacher; he was sad to discover that none of the schools taught the history of black Americans. He started the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History to study the important things black people had accomplished and on February"
