Black History Month Program 2019

Black History Month Program 2019

February is the month we celebrate African American history. The celebration of Black History Month began as “Negro History Week,” which was created in 1926 by Carter G. Woodson, a noted African American historian, scholar, educator, and publisher. It became a month-long celebration in 1976. The month of February was chosen to coincide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln (history.com).

IMSA-North will take part in the celebration of African American history with our annual Black History Month program.
