quicko: not aware

It just kind of dawned on me for the first time this month that there was no African-American History Month going on in Australia.  Not that I ever really did much for it in America, but I was usually aware of it, with school announcements every day about inventions invented by African-Americans and such.  Not a peep about George Washington Carver and goodness knows how many uses of the peanut here.

I think "American" being the operative word here, leaves no reason to be surprised it isn't noticed in Australia. Of course, we usually refer to it as Black History Month anyway. And more than 100 uses for the common peanut, discovered by George Washington Carver. Come to the MidPointe Library in West Chester,OH, on Feb. 19 at 7:00 pm to hear a talk on this very topic.
