Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of blacks in U.S. history. The event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. 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.
Please take some time with your children this month and share some of these great videos about black historians! Grammy's Book Nook has some fantastic read aloud books that will teach our children some great facts about some very important people in American history.
Also, if you're looking for somewhere to take your family this month in Omaha, check out these events listed around our community!
