February is Black History Month*, and every American should take some time to celebrate African-American history and culture. From civil rights to business, music, literature and medicine, black Americans have played a major part in defining what makes America great.
Here are several ways you and your family can celebrate African-American culture as part of Black History Month:

1. Visit the new Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial on the National Mall
2. Listen to some blues, soul, R&B, hip-hop and jazz
3. Read The Autobiography of Malcolm X and or Martin Luther King Jr.
4. Cook a dinner of traditional African-American foods

The Magic Behind E.T.

The story explored the innocence of youth, making a connection, and building and valuing relationships.*

In celebration of E.T.’s 30th anniversary,
I created a coloring sheet. Click the image
