2023 Black History Month Program

2023 Black History Month Program
Posted on 02/03/2023
We will have our Black History Month program on Thursday, February 16th at 5:30 PM in the gym which will showcase our student's talents and gifts as they honor Black historians of the present and past. 

The celebratory month also is known as National African American History Month, is an annual celebration of achievements by black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in the story of the United States of America. 

Founded by historian Carter G. Woodson, black history week was first celebrated on Feb. 12, 1926, to commemorate and celebrate the contributions to our nation made by people of African descent. The date coincides with the birthdays of abolitionist/editor Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln.  

During the U.S. bicentennial in 1976, black history week was expanded to a month-long celebration. Since then, U.S. presidents have designated February as National African-American History Month. 

As a school, we champion this month as an additional opportunity to educate our students about the triumph of African American History, and the work ahead of us as a nation to achieve educational equality for all.
