MetroED will be celebrating Black History Month throughout the month of February. Join us in celebrating the many achievements, contributions, and traditions of African Americans.
Learn about Black history makers, explore cultural traditions, and honor the evolution of Black history in America. From the Civil Rights Movement to #BlackLivesMatter, it is vital to understand our history so that we can impact our future.
Black History Month celebrates the achievements of African Americans and recognizes the prominent role of African Americans in U.S. history. Black History Month, created by American Historian Carter G. Woodson, originally began as Negro History Week. Since 1976, every U.S. President has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Black History Month is also celebrated in Canada and the United Kingdom.
Black History Month has inspired schools and communities across the nation to organize local celebrations, create black history clubs and host performances and lectures.
