Black History Month has been set as a time to celebrate and reflect on the many achievements and contributions made by African Americans throughout history.
Originating in 1926, African American history was celebrated for a week in February, and by the late 1960s, it had expanded to a month. Each US president since then has officially designated February as Black History Month and has endorsed a theme. This year’s theme celebrates the family: “Black Family: Representation, Identity and Diversity”.
Stay Strong. Stay Safe. Stay United.
