Black History Month Facts for Kids
- When is Black History Month? Black History Month occurs annually in February of each year.
- Black History Month Dates: Saturday, February 1 – February 28
- Black History Month was initially just a week long! It was created in 1926 by the Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, who wanted to honor the contributions of African American inventors and important Black people in history.
Why is February Black History Month?
Both Frederick Douglass, a leader in the abolitionist movement (an organized effort to end the practice of slavery in the United States), and Abraham Lincoln have birthdays in February. It is said that this is one of the reasons Black History Month was chosen for the month of February (February 28th or February 29th during a Leap Year).
