"National African American History Month in February celebrates the contributions that African Americans have made to American history in their struggles for freedom and equality, and deepens our understanding of our nation's history.

National African American History Month had its origins in 1915 when historian and author Dr. Carter G. Woodson founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History...The celebration was expanded to a month in 1976, the nation’s bicentennial. President Gerald R. Ford urged Americans to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.”

Since then each American president has issued African American History Month proclamations."
