Black History Month
is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for
recognizing the central role of blacks in U.S. history. The event grew out of
“Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and
other prominent African Americans. 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.
