  • February is from the Latin term Februarius, meaning to either 'Purify' or 'Atone'. Many people don't know that Negro History week was established in February, 1926. Carter G. Woodson (1875-1950), an African-American writer who wrote the book Mis-Education of the Negro, and is also known as the "Father of Black History," said that he had chosen the month of February for reasons of "tradition" and "reform."
  • Celebrating Black History Month means to me that our African Americans are celebrating our freedom from slavery and have since uplifted our communities to educate, spread wisdom, and show love to our future generations.
