Black History Month

Black History Month, or 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 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. 

On this new bulletin board you can catch can get a very brief biography of eight important people in Black history and in U.S. history. All eight of these role models can teach us something different. Remember to challenge like Rosa, dream like Martin, believe like Thurgood, build like Madam, speak like Fredrick, write like Maya, lead like Harriet and fight like Malcolm. 

Have a good day all!
