February is Black History Month – and our schools are celebrating the achievements, culture, contributions, and prominent role of African Americans in United States and world history.
Black History Month, created by American Historian Carter G. Woodson, originally began as Negro History Week. Since 1976, every U.S. President has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. This designation has inspired schools and communities across the nation to develop learning experiences for students, organize local celebrations, and host special performances centered around Woodson’s vision.
