Black.History.Month. What is there not to understand?

The whole month of October is Black History Month.

Do I need to write this in capitals or is it easy to understand just like that I wonder?

A 'colleague' yesterday asked me what I was reading.

"Events that are on in Worthing celebrating Black History Month" said I.

"What does that mean, Black History Month" replied the intelligent 'colleague'.

"Black dot History dot Month?" queried I with as raised an eyebrow as I could get.

"Oh. I didn't know."

What she meant was that she did not know that we had any history.


Especially as she has the blondest hair..EVER.
