Celebrating Black History Month
Observed annually during the month of February, Black History Month is an important American tradition that dates all the way back to 1926. It was established by historian Carter G. Woodson to ensure that contributions made by African American men and women throughout history, would not be forgotten.
Originally called Negro History Week, it was celebrated on the second week of February, to coincide with the birthdays of two US leaders that helped African Americans gain equality – President Abraham Lincoln (Feb 12th) and human rights activist, Frederick Douglass (Feb 14th). While Mr. Woodson was hoping for a positive response to his idea, even he was surprised at the amount of interest and enthusiasm this week-long celebration generated – not just from the African Americans, but also, the progressive white population. What would have surprised him even more is that today, the event is celebrated for a whole month and not just in the USA – But also, Canada and even the United Kingdom.
