Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements and
contributions of the African American and Black communities—a time
(though not the only time!) for emphasizing the central role of this
varied community throughout 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.
