Celebrate National African American History Month

 In 1915, the story of Black History Month first began after the Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery in the United States.  It is also an annual celebration of achievements by black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. history. This celebration was developed out of “Negro History Week,” by Carter G. Woodson, a Harvard-trained historian prominent African-American minister Jesse E Moorland.  “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.”
