BHM 2014 Honors: Colored Pencils

It's easy to think that things have always been peaches and crayola for colored pencils, but they actually have a very, well, colorful past. Colored pencils were once thought to be beneath other types of pencils. Regular pencils had the better bathrooms, water fountains, and many civil writes that colored pencils weren't allowed. Luckily, the world is a more open-minded place today and colored pencils are no longer banned from expressing themselves in all their prismatic glory. (Except on standardized tests.) So happy Black History Month colored pencils... know why regular pencils are #2? Because you're #1, that's why!
