It's Black History Month

February is also Black History month. It is a good reminder to support black-owned businesses. It is also a good time to go in to Atlanta to see the Obama Portraits Tour at the High Museum of Art (through March 20). The High is the exclusive Southeast venue from this inspiring exhibition.
