Black History Month
Black History Month is an annual observance to recognize achievements and contributions by African Americans. It dates back to 1926, when it was launched by Dr. Carter G. Woodson. The observance period was initially one week and known as "Negro History Week", but since 1976 it has been Black History Month.
