About This Lesson

American historian Carter G. Woodson established Black History Week to commemorate and celebrate the contributions to our nation made by people of African descent. It was first celebrated during the second week of February in 1926 to coincide with the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln (February 12) and abolitionist/editor Frederick Douglass (February 14). In 1976, as part of the nation’s bicentennial, the week was expanded to a month. Since then, U.S. presidents have proclaimed February National Black (African American) History Month.
