February is Black History Month

Source: www.Wikipedia.com

Black History Month began as Negro History Week in 1926 by Carter G. Woodson. The second week of February was chosen because it marked the birthday of both Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. Woodson created the holiday with the hope that it eventually be eliminated when black history became fundamental to American history. Negro History Week was met with enthusiastic response; it prompted the creation of black history clubs, an increase in interest among teachers, and interest from progressive whites. Negro History Week grew in popularity throughout the following decades, with mayors across the United States endorsing it as a holiday. At El Centro College, we will be celebrating Black History Month throughout the month of February.
