Black History Month, or National African American History Month, is an
annual celebration of achievements by black Americans and a time for
recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. history. The
event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted
historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since
1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of
February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world,
including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to
celebrating black history. --history.com
Throughout the month of February we will be celebrating Black History Month with a variety of programs, events and exhibits across Monroe County.
