GROWTH MINDSET: WITH TIME AND EFFORT I CAN IMPROVE!
The month of February is officially designated as Black History Month by the U.S. Congress. What began as a one-week celebration of the contributions of African-Americans to U.S. History evolved into a month-long celebration to highlight the people and events of Black history in the U.S. and around the world. Learn about the amazing contributions of African American writers, poets, inventors, politicians, educators, doctors, scientists, and entertainers. Also learn about the remarkable acts of bravery and courage of everyday African Americans throughout history. A great site to visit is: http://www.history.com/topics/black-history-month
