Black History Month

Black History Month is an observance of the history of the African Diaspora in a number of countries outside of Africa. It began as Negro History Week by historian Carter G. Woodson in 1926 to educate the American people about African-American history, focusing on African-Americans' cultural backgrounds and reputable achievements. Since 1976, it has been observed annually in the United States and Canada in February.
