February is the month we celebrate the achievements of Black Americans. But is this still relevant? That’s the question posed by newspaper columnist Phillip Morris in Black History Month is Outliving its Usefulness. He claims that we no longer need a month to celebrate African-American’s contribution to history.
In his follow up column, Black History Month Revisited — Neither Color-Biased nor Color-Blind, Morris clarifies and defends his stance stating that he wants African-American history studied during every month, not just during one month a year.
