We would like to thank all of the organizations, staff, faculty and students for allowing this year’s Black History Month events to be a success.
It all began in the year 1926, when a historian named Carter G. Woodson realized that black history was not properly acknowledged in American history. It was then that he decided to dedicate an entire week in February known as Negro History Week, to appreciate black history.
