It is not too late to celebrate Black History Month

See also

The celebration of black history was established in 1925 by Harvard trained historian Carter G. Woodson. Initially it was a week long celebration, eventually in 1976, the celebration was extended to become a month long period of honoring the achievements of African Americans. At this time President Gerald R. Ford encouraged Americans to take the opportunity to recognize the often unnoticed accomplishments of black Americans.

Black History Month provides an opportunity for reflection of the great contributions of African Americans. The accomplishments of African Americans are often overlooked and during this time looking back and celebrating the great strides and achievements allows better understanding of how much African Americans contributed to the foundation of America. Although February is coming to a close it is still not too late to partake in some special events.
