Media Services acknowledge the amazing contributions of African Americans and Africans in the diaspora as celebrated in February during Black History Month.  In 1915, historian Carter G. Woodson co-founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History.  From these roots, Black History Month has become a nationally observed month of celebration and remembrance for important people and events within the Black community of the United States. Chosen for Abraham Lincoln’s birthday on February 12th and Frederick Douglass' birthday on February 18, this month long celebration is an opportunity to commemorate great figures in Black history.
