    In 1926, Dr. Carter G. Woodson christened the second week in February “Negro History Week”. Dr. Woodson chose the second week in February because two men he considered influential to Black Americans, Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln, were born during that week. From there, Negro History Week has expanded and grown into Black History Month. And every year in February, most of America recognizes Black history by studying and honoring the scholars, leaders, innovators and activists that have shaped the very course of the history of Africans in America.
