DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Black History Month / African American Ideas

Black History Month was established in 1926.  Although there is an international aspect to Black History month, it is mainly an American holiday.  In 1926, Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson and other African American and white scholars, launched "Negro History Week" so that Americans could reflect on the history and contributions of African Americans.  In the 1970s, the celebration of African American history was expanded to include the entire month of February.

Black History Month should not be confused with a national holiday for African countries.  African countries have their own national holidays at various times throughout the year.  For example, Kenya's national holiday is on December 12th.
