Black History Month – February
Carter G. Woodson founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH). The ASNLH announced the first Negro History Week in 1925 during a week in February that included the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglas. By mid-century, many mayors had issued declarations for Negro History Week. The Civil Rights movement and the Black Awakening in the 1960’s brought forth a greater awareness of African American contributions to history and culture. It was fifty years after the first Negro History week that the ASNLH celebrated their first African American History Month.
