February celebration

Black History Month gets its due

Black Unity by Elizabeth Catlett, 1968 (cedar, 21 × 12 1/2 × 23 inches), from the collection of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, is among the works in Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power.

It's neither possible nor practical to keep up with the many causes celebrated each month. February alone offers a huge array, including Adopt a Rescued Rabbit Month, American Heart Month, Bake for Family Fun Month, Chocolate Lovers' Month, Human Relations Month, Library Lovers Month and Marijuana Awareness Month.
