Celebrate Diversity by Learning More about African American History Month!

Black History is American History and is relevant to all students!

Black History Month is celebrated annually in the United States, Canada, in the United Kingdom and in Germany. It is also known as African-American History Month in the United States. The purpose of Black History Month is to remember both the important people of African descent and the important events in Black history. Black History Month began in 1926 as an annual week-long celebration called Negro History Week, created to encourage education about America's Black history. By 1929 it had gained nationwide support. In 1969, leaders of Kent State University's Black United Students proposed a month-long celebration, which took place one year later in February 1970. In 1976 the United States government officially recognized Black History Month.


Throughout history, many important events in Black history have occurred in February. It was chosen as the month to celebrate Black History Month because the Black abolitionist and writer Frederick Douglass was born in this month, and so was Abraham Lincoln, who played an important role in shaping Black history.


Though important, there is so much more to black history than Harriet Tubman, Martin Luther King Jr., The Emancipation Proclamation and sports trivia!


"African Americans share a proud legacy of courage, dedication and innovative vision that has significantly contributed to our nation's success and prosperity. Leaders like Frederick Douglass, Thurgood Marshall, and Martin Luther King, Jr., possessed a clarity of purpose and were instrumental in exposing and addressing issues that threatened American’s founding principles. The battle for freedom, equality, and opportunity was fought on the front lines by strong figures such as Sojourner Truth and Fannie Lou Hamer, and everyday heroes and she-roes who helped to lead this nation to a more hopeful and just society while striving to attain a more perfect union."
