follow url Black History Month was founded as Negro History Week by Dr. Carter G. Woodson in 1926. Woodson chose the second week of February for this celebration because it included the birthdays of both Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. It wasn’t until the bicentennial of the Declaration of Independence in 1976 that the celebration extended from a week to an entire month.

source “Woodson hoped that the celebration would help blacks overcome their inferiority complex and instill racial pride and optimism,” said Robert Hall, a professor of African-American studies. “Black History Month also helps people from all different cultures to become a little more knowledgeable about African-American history and culture.” Matt Brown, a middler entrepreneurship major, said he feels schools don’t do enough to teach black history.

Very few people actually know about Medgar Evers or the real stances behind Malcolm X or Muhammed Ali. Not enough is done throughout the month of February, or the entire year for that matter.”
