Amongst other things this month, February celebrates African-American (Black) History. So let's see how aware of these noted figures in history you might be.

01. He had a dream.
02. She stood up for what's right by staying seated.
03. The current President of the United States of America.
(Don't worry, they are about to get more difficult.)
04. The man accredited as "The Founder of Black History".
05. This is considered the predecessor to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
06. He founded Tuskegee University.
07. He was a famous agricultural researcher.
08. He discovered how to safely store blood, although the story of his final fate is sometimes told wrong.
09. Although already a well established entertainment personality by this point, he received a Doctor of Education degree in 1976.
10. A noted scholar, author, and philosopher originally known as Arthur Lee Smith, Junior.

We'll reveal all next weekend. But for now, let's peek into THE ANSWERS BOX and discover the results of our "Love Songs" quiz from February 12's Puzzle Corner.

01. The Witch Doctor (by David Seville, with or without Alvin and the Chipmunks) advised the lovelorn "Ooh, ee, ooh, ah, ah, ting, tang, walla, walla, bing, bang".
02. Frankie Valli prayed to Venus for the girl of his dreams.
03. While there is more to romance than that, the Starland Vocal Band hoped for a little Afternoon Delight.

05. The Temptations realized they had sunshine on a cloudy day with My Girl.
06. What musical question did Bryan Adams ask Don Juan DeMarco?
