About Black History Month

Established by Carter G. Woodson, Black History Month was originally a week-long recognition of the achievements of African Americans. "However, Woodson never confined Negro History to a weekHis life’s work and the mission of ASALH since its founding in 1915 represent a living testimony to the year-round and year-after-year study of African American history." (Evelyn Brooks Higginbotham, 2021 ASALH National President, Why Black History Month?)
