NATIONAL BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Traditionally, in the United States and Canada,Â the month containing Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday (12th) and Frederick Douglass’s presumed birthday (14th) is when we observe a special period in which we recognize the achievements and contributions by African Americans. The first year of observation was in 1926 and launched by Dr. Carter G. Woodson.
