Do we STILL say “Black History Month?” or now “African American History Month?”

The media is still confused on the subject matter and reporting both terms. Black people still refer to themselves as black people. A call to action was started to ban the N word. However, Vanessa Williams used the word in her recent interview with Barbara Walters! Ops, I guess former Miss America missed that media memo.

Still should you use Black or African American in your PR Campaigns?
By 2010 African Americans will hold a buying power worth 1 Trillion Dollars! Better start learning what they like to be called, by whom, and how to connect.
