February was named Black History Month in 1976, but did you know that we celebrated Black History for 50 years before that?
In 1926, Carter G. Woodson founded Negro History Week to "inspire people to live more abundantly, to learn to begin with life as they find it and make it better.” In that spirit, here are three ways we can honor Black History Month:
- Tap "Join" above.
• Educate - Learn something new about the history of Black people in America. Listen to Black voices as they tell you how that history is unfolding today.
• Advocate - Engage with Black activists and educators online to find out how you can help boost their efforts.
• Celebrate - Find the joy in Black culture. Watch movies and listen to music by Black artists, try new recipes, read Black authors, and more.
