  • February Is African American History Month

    African American History Month, celebrated annually in February, is an opportunity to recognize the contributions of African Americans to our nation’s history and culture. The origin of the observance can be traced to 1926, when historian Carter G. Woodson and his organization, the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, announced the first Negro History Week. In subsequent years, the response to the effort built until 50 years later, in 1976, the first month-long celebration of African American history was held. Today, African American History Month is the occasion for events and observances across the country to honor the achievements of African Americans and to recognize their central role in U.S. history.
