BEGINNING FEBRUARY 1ST until FEBRUARY 28TH MANY WILL CELEBRATE BLACK HISTORY MONTH, INCLUDING SPEAK TO ALL. THROUGH OUT THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY SPEAK TO ALL WILL POST KNOW FACTS ABOUT AFRICAN AMERICANS PAST, and PRESENT, so ON THIS FIRST DAY WE WILL INFORM YOU OF THE HISTORY OF BLACK HISTORY MONTH.
Black History Month had its beginnings in 1926 in the United States, when historian CARTER G WOODSON announced the second week of February to be “Negro History Week”. This week was chosen because it marked the birthday of both FREDERICK DOUGLASS and ABRAHAM LINCOLON. CARTER G. WOODSON created the holiday with the hopes that it will eventually be eliminated when black history became fundamental to American history, which as we know today has not been the case. Negro History Week was met with enthusiastic response; it prompted the creation of black history clubs, an increase in interest among teachers, and interest from progressive whites.
