United States History

 
 
America prides itself on themes, or "naming" things.  For example, American couples always want to define themselves.  Boyfriend and girlfriend?  Friends with benefits?  Just hooking up?  The list goes on.  In America, we like to "name" - that is, give themes to - our months.  February's theme is Black History Month.  Can you think of any African-American historical figures?  Take five minutes and write down what you come up with in your notebook.  When you're done, say them out loud to a friend to see if he or she came up with the same answers.
