HistEbony (1426 hits)

FORMATION: HistEbony...the blending of "history" and "ebony"
... DEFINITION: the yearlong celebration of Black History -

The spelling of HistEbony is correct. The capital “E” in “ebony” is purposely used to show the formation of a portmanteau, which occurs with the blending of two different words or when the meanings of two different words are packed into one.
