Black History Month

Definition: Black History Month started in 1926 in the United States as Negro History Week. February was chosen because both Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass have birthdays in that month.

Organizations celebrate the month with observances, performances and exhibits paying tribute to African Americans, throughout the month.
