Black History Month is one of the most important celebrations in our country. It recognizes the achievements of many African-Americans throughout our nation’s history. Black History Month began in 1915 by Carter G. Woodson, a Harvard historian, and Jesse E. Moorland who was a prominent minister. They founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH), today known as the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH). This organization was dedicated to researching and promoting the accomplishments of black Americans and people of African descent.
