AFRICANGLOBE- Negro History Week was initiated by Dr. Carter G. Woodson in 1926. His goal was enlightening the descendants of slavery to their history that had been neglected, resulting in his creation of Negro History Week in the second week of February in 1926. At first, he was met with a lukewarm response. Dr. Carter worked diligently for over twenty years promoting his dream. His brain child has been enhanced into a Black History Month
AFRICANGLOBE - In honor of this year's Black History Month, we've gathered 30 inspirational quotes from some of the most influential Black personalities of all time. Arising out of "Negro History Week" of the 1960s, February has since been designated as Black History Month by every U.S. president since 1976.
AFRICANGLOBE - Once again, the month of February is here, marked as Black History Month on calendars in the United States and Canada (October in Great Britan).Schools, community groups and bloggers will focus attention on the historical contributions of Black people to our culture.
AFRICANGLOBE - Yes, February is the shortest month of the year. However, Kwanzaa runs from December 26 to January 1, and no sooner is it over, than we begin to think of Martin Luther King whose birthday is celebrated on the second Monday in January. And right after the King holiday, we begin to prepare for Black History Month. Therefore, the 64 days between December 26 and February 28, are, in reality, Black History Season.
