Celebrate Black History Month

Black History Month, also called African American History Month, is a month-long commemoration of African American history and achievement that takes place each February in the United States. It was begun in 1976.The idea for Black History Month was first conceived by the historian Carter G. Woodson and members of his Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (now the Association for the Study of African American Life and History). Since 1928, the organization that Woodson founded, the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, has selected an annual theme for the celebration. The theme for 2023, “Black Resistance” is intended to highlight how Black Americans have fought against racial inequality. Click the image below to explore!
