Black History Month
Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of blacks in U.S. history. The event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month (according to the History Channel). The ABA is celebrating our legal trailblazers on social media. Follow/Like @ABADiversity on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook to learn more!
