Remember That February Is Black History Month

From February 1st to February 28th, people across America will be recognizing and honoring African Americans that contributed in changing and improving the history of the United States. That is why we celebrate Black History Month.

Black History Month was started in 1915 by Carter G. Woodson. Dr. Woodson was one of the first African-American’s to receive a doctorate degree from Harvard University.  He was also a historian, author, journalist and the founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History.  During that time it was called Negro History Week, as Woodson strove to create a holiday to celebrate and bring more awareness to black history.

African Americans are recognized for their valiant efforts and contributions to society. With so many school districts across the country still not teaching the complete story about American History, these people’s legacies could be quickly forgotten. I, for one, would like to remember and recognize their achievements and to celebrate the important events they created to help shape this great nation of ours.

So come and celebrate Black History month with us. Let’s take the time to remember an important African American who contributed so much to our world and improved the very fabric of our country.
