Celebrating Black History Month

Black History Month

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating Black history.

PBS.org created a lesson for learners in grades 6-12 that discusses 22-year-old Amanda Gorman’s inaugural poem “The Hill We Climb.” You can find the lesson here.
