BHM: The History....



During the month of February, Mike and I will feature Black History Month posts in addition to our regular posts about what's going on in our world today. The title's of our Black History Month features will be designated with the heading "BHM."

Black History Month began as Negro History Week on Feb. 12, 1926. It was started by Carter G. Woodson, an African American born to former slaves. He enrolled in high school at age 20 and later earned a PhD in history from Harvard.

During his studies he realized that history books largely ignored black Americans. He founded the Association for the Study of African American Life and History and launched Negro History Week to bring national attention to the contributions of black people.

The celebration was expanded to a month in 1976.
