Celebrating Black History Month!

Black History Month
Truth comes to us from the past, then, like gold washed down from the mountains.
-Carter G. Woodson

Black history and culture is such a part of the American fabric — and the school curriculum — that it’s difficult to imagine a time when that wasn’t so. Established as Negro History Week in the 1920’s by Carter G. Woodson, February was chosen for the celebration because Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln were born in this month. Extended to a month-long celebration in 1976, Black History Month is an opportunity to emphasize the history and achievements of African Americans.
