A Virtual Tribute to

The Origins of Black History Month

The Father of Black History

In 1926, Dr. Carter G. Woodson launched Negro History Week, which coincided with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln.

In 1976, President Gerald Ford officially recognized Black History Month and asked the public to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history” (History.com)
