February is known as Black History Month. Black History Month started off as Negro week in 1926. When historian Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History announced the second week of February to be “Negro History Week. This week was chosen because it coincided with the birthday of Abraham Lincoln on February 12 and of Frederick Douglass on February 14, both of which dates Black communities had celebrated together since the late 19th century.
Then in 1969, the expansion of Black History week to month was first proposed by the leaders of the Black United Students at Kent State University. The first celebration of the Black History Month took place at Kent State one year later. In 1976 as part of the United States Bicentennial, the informal expansion of Negro History Week to Black History Month was officially recognized by the U.S.
