Black History Month Black History Month


Black History Month is an annual observance in the United States. The event was first celebrated during a week in February in 1926. The celebration was expanded to a month in 1976, the nation's bicentennial. Carter G. Woodson selected February to encompass the birthdays of two great Americans who played a prominent role in shaping black history, namely Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass, whose birthdays are the 12 and the 14, respectively.
