African American History Month

Carter Woodson

African American History is observed during February in Britain, Canada, and the United States as a celebration of important people and history of African descent. African American History Month began as Black History Week, but was expanded 1976 to cover the whole month of February.

Britain adopted the celebration of African American History Month in 1987 and Canada adopted the observance in 1997.
