Is February not Black History month?

I have observed very little toward the celebration of this historic day for the celebration of Black accomplishments. I do not know if it is because I do not watch television, but I am seeing very little towards its celebration. This day was given as a way of bringing to the forefront the achievements and accomplishments of African Americans. Dr. Kenneth Clark was the first African-American to earn a doctorate in psychology at Columbia: the first to join the New York State Board of Regents and the first African-American to serve as president of the American Psychological Association. He also assisted corporations in establishing racial policies and minority hiring programs. In 1954 Clark’s findings on the adverse effects of racial segregation were instrumental in the Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka. Kansas landmark Supreme Court decision, helping over turn the “separate but equal” doctrine that had legalized segregated schools for decades. The court ruled that public-school segregation was unconstitutional.
