I think we should honor all of the African Americans that have made positive changes to our society all year round. Those black individuals make a hole thorough our hearts because so many of them get sent away from their parents and having a month stand out for this purpose sheds light and opens eyes to those who think indifferently about people of color. Much of the technology and conveniences we have still today were developed by African Americans and it needs to be acknowledged just like anyone else on this planet that has made strides for the human RACE in general, Which sheds tears into or eyes. Black history month also tells of the injustices that were done during slavery and the many that stood together to overcome that. I think Martin Luther King Jr. was a good role in Black History Month because he was the one who said "Fight hate with love."
