WHAT IS BLACK HISTORY MONTH?
Every February, Americans commemorate African Americans’ accomplishments and history as part of Black History Month. Black History Month was established to bring attention to African Americans’ achievements in the United States.
It pays tribute to all Black people in the United States, from the earliest enslaved individuals carried over from Africa in the early 17th century through today’s African Americans. Some of which are: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who fought for equal rights for African-Americans in the 1950s and 1960s. Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American justice appointed to the United States Supreme Court in 1967. Mae Jemison, was the first female African-American astronaut to travel to space in 1992. And Barack Obama, who was elected the first-ever African-American president of the United States in 2106.
Since the very first Negro History Week in 1926, several countries, including Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, and the Netherlands, have joined the United States in honoring Black people and their contributions to history and culture.
