National African American History Month, also referred to as African American History Month and popularly as Black History Month,is observed annually in February, in celebration of the achievements of black Americans. National African American History Month recognizes the central role of African Americans in U.S. history.
The origins of National African American History Month date back to 1926, when Dr. Carter G. Woodson, a noted scholar of black history, set aside time in February to recognize the heritage, achievements, and contributions of African Americans. Since 1976, the Association for the Study of African American Life and History(ASALH), the organization founded by Dr. Woodson, has expanded the observance of Black History Week into a month-long celebration.
