February is 'Black History Month’! Let’s Celebrate!February means 'Black History Month' and a lot of celebrations in honor of the men and women, throughout history, who have defined this month for all that it is!
Black History Month was first proposed by black educators and the Black United Students at Kent State University in February 1969. The first celebration of Black History Month took place at Kent State one year later, from January 2, 1970 – February 28, 1970.
Six years later, Black History Month was being celebrated all across the country in educational institutions, centers of Black culture and community centers, both great and small, when President Gerald Ford recognized Black History Month, during the celebration of the United States Bicentennial. He urged Americans to "seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history".
We love celebrating the countless men and women, throughout history, who’ve helped to make this month so special! From celebrations and exhibits to other special honorable events, there’s a lot of things to do and see this time of year; We can learn so much through these special events that are held each February, and it’s important for everyone to know the history of this month and the people who it exists to honor. Check out the long list of events held in your area of NC, online, and consider attending some of them to expand your knowledge and pay tribute to the African American heroes.
