Black History Month, set in February, can trace its roots back to 1926, when the Association for the Study of African American Life and History sponsored a National Negro History Week. By the end of the 1960s, the week evolved into Black History Month on many college campuses, and it was officially recognized in 1976 by President Gerald Ford.

The month is dedicated to celebrating the often neglected accomplishments by Black Americans in their central role in the nation's history and honoring their struggles.
