Black History Month: Home


February is Black History Month, also known as African American History Month, a time to recognize and honor the history and achievements of African Americans who have shaped our world and continue to shape our future.  According to the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), the month “is a special tribute—a time of acknowledgement, of reflection, and inspiration—that comes to life in real and ongoing activities throughout the year, just as the work of ASALH has for 106 years steadily asserted both racial pride and the centrality of race and the black experience to the American narrative and heritage."
