Celebrate Black History Month          February Is Black History Month: In 1969, Black students and educators at Kent University proposed an annual celebration of Black History Month, and, a year later, the university held the first celebration. Black History Month became a national observance within educational institutions and Black community organizations.  Then in 1976, President Gerald Ford urged the country to recognize Black History Month during a bicentennial observance.  Carter G. Woodson, Ph.D., a Black history scholar, proposed the observance of Negro History Week for the second week of February. That week is meant to include Abraham Lincoln’s and Frederick Douglass’ birthdays.
