Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their true central role in U.S. history. Also known as African American History Month, the event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. 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." -- Black History Month Moorpark College 2022.
African American History Month Exhibits & Collections is another good source of material related to African American history available from the Library of the Congress and other partner agencies.
