Black History Month started as Negro History Week in the United States in 1926 by Historian Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History. This is the time to shed light on and celebrate the contributions blacks have made to America. Woodson stated “What we need is not a history of selected races or nations, but the history of the world void of national bias, hate and religious prejudice.” Black History is American History.
