Make Black History Month Your History Month

February is Black History Month. Like previous years, we will be posting at least one story each day which pays tribute to African Americans.

50thweddinganniversary From The Root:

The Root wants you to help us celebrate Black History Month. We will publish photos that chronicle your family’s experience in this country. We’re looking for historical photographs, family reunions, graduations, weddings and funerals—in other words, images that chronicle African-American life, past and present.

We will post these photos to our site throughout February. We've published some of our favorites here as inspiration.
