What is Black History Month?
Black History Month, also known as the National African American History month, is the whole month of February each year where we highlight the accomplishments of African Americans whether it be inventions that have changed society or bringing awareness to how far the African American community has come along in society today. This annual celebration was started by a historian by the name of Carter G. Woodson, along with the help of additional African American figures as well dating all the way back to 1915.
