Black History Month, or National African American History Month, is an annual celebration of achievements by African-Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in the rich history of the United States of America. The event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African-Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history.
