Birth of Black History Month and How the Legacy Lives On at Historically Black Colleges

By: Tyler Dickinson, Marketing Intern
In 1926, Carter G. Woodson started the concept of Black History Month. He was a historian and one of the first African Americans to earn a doctorate degree. Woodson dedicated the second week of February to observe African American History, the week that coincides Abraham Lincoln’s and Frederick Douglas’ birthdays. Woodson realized that the history of African Americans was not being represented adequately. He wrote The Journal of African American History a decade earlier, which he believed represented the African American experience accurately for the public. Woodson’s contributions led the USPS to issue a stamp honoring him in 1984.
