1 02 2023

Welcome to a whole month dedicated to increasing your American history IQ!

Carter Godwin Woodson pioneered the celebration of “Negro History Week” in 1926, (second week in February), to coincide with the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln (February 12th) and Frederick Douglass (February 14th). That week of recognition has been extended to a full month and is now known as Black History Month.

Ever since 1976, every U.S. President has officially designated February as a time to celebrate and learn history related to Americans of African descent. History.com

Origins of Black History Month

1 02 2023

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating Black history.

Also known as African American History Month, the event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. https://www.history.com/topics/black-history/black-history-month#origins-of-black-history-month
