About Black History Month
Black History Month is an annual celebration of the culture and achievements of African Americans. Established as one week in 1926, it was expanded to a month in 1976 by President Gerald Ford. Since then, every U.S. President has recognized February as Black History Month.
During this time, the nation observes the contributions of African Americans in politics, sports, entertainment, and more. It is also a time to reflect on the many who fought for civil rights. Learn more about Black History Month at africanamericanhistorymonth.gov.
