While February is usually all about Valentine’s Day, the entire month is also Black History Month! This an annual celebration highlights the importance and history of the African Diaspora in American life. And even though we celebrate African-American culture through-out the year in Southern California, this month offers a great opportunity to participate in unique events celebrating the spirit of this commemoration.
