When filmmaker Shukree Tilghman goes to a gathering of Confederate history enthusiasts in Virginia, he feels as if he has stepped behind enemy lines. While participants advocate for the establishment of a special month dedicated to their own heritage and history, it seems that some particpants do not see how the issue of slavery and the African American experience intersects with their own.

Shukree Hassan Tilghman, a 29-year-old African American filmmaker, is on a cross-country campaign to end Black History Month. Through this tongue-in-cheek journey, More Than a Month investigates what the treatment of history tells us about race and equality in a "post-racial" America.
