In 1926, Carter G. Woodson instituted the first week-long celebration to raise awareness of African Americans’ contributions to history. Prior to this time, little information could be found regarding African-American history since achievements were often left left out of history books. Fifty years later, the week became a month. February was chosen because it celebrates the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglas, both of whom dramatically affected the lives of African Americans.
