Original Celebration Length of Black History: Black History Month Fact #2

Black History Month Fact #2

Did you know from 1926 to 1976, Black History was celebrated for only one week in February?

In 1976, the Association for the Study of African American Life and History extended the celebration of Black History to one full month.

And that’s why we have Black History Month today.
