When you were a school kid the month of February was significant for two things: Valentine's Day and Black History Month. Although you always got the same candy hearts and valentines every year, Black History Month, with its yearly theme, always brought something new. (Okay, mentioning George Washington Carver -- Mr. Peanut Butter himself -- was one constant too.) The Association for the Study of Afro-American Life and History is the organization that, among many other things, comes up with the annual theme for Black History Month. For the first time in the group's 83-year history, it is holding its convention in Miami at the Wyndham Hotel (1601 Biscayne Blvd.) today through Sunday. The public is invited to participate by attending luncheons, panel discussions, a Pan-African bookfest, and taking black history bus tours. Registration ranges from $30 to $90. The fee for some special events ranges from $30 to $60. Call 305-636-2390. (
