Black History Month
Black History Month was created to celebrate and honor the many achievements and contributions made by African-Americans to the economic, cultural, spiritual and political development of the U.S.
Beginning in 1926, events were held the second week of February because of their proximity to the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass, two individuals who dramatically affected the lives black Americans.
