Black History Month Fact – February is Black History Month. It is an annual celebration of achievements by Black Americans and a time for recognizing the important role of African Americans in U.S. History. The event grew out of “Negro History Week”, started by historian Carter G. Woodson, and was officially recognized in 1976. Since then, every U.S. President has officially designated February as Black History Month.
