About Black History Month
Black History Month, or National African American History Month, is an annual celebration of achievements by black Americans. Recognized in the United States since 1976 and also in many other countries around the world, including Canada and the U.K., the month grew out of "Negro History Week," the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans.
