* “Black History Month, also called African American History Month, monthlong commemoration of African American history and achievement that takes place each February in the United States. It was begun in 1976.
The idea for a Black History Month was first conceived by the historian Carter G. Woodson and members of his Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (now the Association for the Study of African American Life and History). Together they organized a Negro History Week, beginning in February 1926. They selected the month of February for this celebration because it was close to the birthdays of U.S. Pres. Abraham Lincoln, who had been responsible for the Emancipation Proclamation, and the African American orator and abolitionistFrederick Douglass.”
Pizza and Taco are best friends and decide to create their own comic. They each have different ideas and can’t figure out how to combine them. They try to make separate comics, but it does not work. Super Fart power for the win! Very funny.
