[ARCHIVED] February is Black History Month

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. Also known as African American History Month, the event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating Black history. See more information on Black History Month.

The Skokie Public Library offers numerous programs this month to spotlight the important contributions and achievements of Black Americans throughout our country's history and present day. See more information from the Skokie Public Library.
