2015 National Black History: A Century of Black Life, History, and Culture

Black History Month honors the contributions of African Americans to United States history.

Black History Month began as “Negro History Week,” which was created in 1926 by Carter G. Woodson, a noted African American historian, scholar, educator, and publisher. It became a month-long celebration in 1976. The month of February was chosen to coincide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln.( Black History Facts, History.com, 2015)(http://www.history.com/topics/black-history/black-history-facts)

Since 1928, every Black History week or month has had a theme that recognizes pivotal events or topics that should be highlighted during the year's celebration. This years theme is A Century of Black Life, History, and Culture.
