February is Black History Month

Black History Month

Join us in recognizing and honoring Black History Month throughout the month of February!
Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by Black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role they played in U.S. history. It was the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent Black 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.
