Black History Month

Join us as we celebrate Black History Month this February.

Black History Month

Black History Month, or National African American History Month, is a time to recognize and celebrate the rich and diverse history of African Americans. The month of February was chosen to coincide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln.

Although we should recognize the achievements of African Americans all throughout the year, Black History Month provides a good opportunity to dedicate some time to learning something new.

  • Jack Johnson became the first African American man to hold the World Heavyweight Champion boxing title in 1908. He held onto the belt until 1915.
