Black History Month is a time to study up on the black men and women who worked to shape America's deep, conflicted history. It's also a time to reflect on why America and other countries need a Black History Month, and how that need reflects work that remains to be done by people of every stripe.

As with everything it comments on, Aaron McGruder's The Boondocks communicates the complexities (and lack thereof) surrounding the longstanding Black History Month conversation with the kind of wit that will leave you wondering the license plate number of the moving vehicle that just smacked into your perspective.

Scroll on for a selection of The Boondocks comics for Black History Month.
