Black History: Curated Collection


Black History Month

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and is a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history.
