Description

The irony of the word 'FREEDOM' is that it is never free - without cost and sacrifice!

Black History Month began as “Negro History Week,” which was created in 1926 by Carter G. Woodson, and is a time to recognize the central role of African Americans in the history of the United States of America. The need arose because black Americans and their accomplishments were largely left out of the educational curriculum of that time. It was not until 1976 that it became a month-long celebration. Why February? This month was chosen to coincide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln.

By sponsoring the first Negro History Week in 1926, the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History inspired schools and communities nationwide to organize local celebrations, establish history clubs and host performances and lectures.

It is a tradition worthy of keeping alive!
