At the beginning of the month I questioned people in my life about whether or not they felt it was still necessary for us to have a Black History Month in America. Here at the end of the month, judging from the events that have transpired in the last few weeks, I am more sure than ever that not only do we need Black history month we need to overhaul it so it can actually do the job it was meant to do in the first place.
When I first published this article I had eight events. Each day since I have added another event. Thank goodness February is a short month! Here are TEN events that happened Black History Month 2013 that hardly inspired celebration.
