They don't really get one; it's September 15 to October 15
When is Native American History Month?
When is...well you get the picture.
Irish Heritage month is March, as is Greek heritage month
October is Italian Heritage month and
Polish history month
German history month is also
September 15 - October 15
May is also Jewish heritage month
April 6 is Scotland day. That's what you get for being stingy
It might be time to do away with this practice, eh? Keeping it separate and in the forefront, while benevolent in intention and full of pride
and all that, in reality just keeps it all separate. And, if I'm not mistaken, keeping focus on differences and enforcing separation is not the idea.

Let's be honest. Things like Black History month and such exist specifically
because the histories and achievements of these segments of the
American population have been intentionally
left out, glossed over, and depreciated in our American History books, in favor of an exclusively
white-Anglo historical narrative. And judging from the five pages of white dumbasses getting butthurt that these people get any recognition at all,
it's still worth keeping these observances in place.
