The History of Black History Month
Black History Month is celebrated every February in the United States. This month-long celebration honors the accomplishments and contributions of black Americans throughout history.
The idea for Black History Month was first proposed by historian Carter G. Woodson in 1915. Woodson chose the month of February because it contained the birthdays of two important figures in black history: Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass.
In 1976, President Gerald Ford officially recognized Black History Month. Since then, every American president has issued a proclamation recognizing February as Black History Month.
Today, Black History Month is celebrated across the country with a variety of events and activities. Many schools and organizations use this month as an opportunity to teach young people about the important role that black Americans have played in our nation’s history.
