Colonial Capital Tours Asks…Do You Know These Little Known Facts About Black History Month

February 22, 2016

Colonial Capital Tours (www.colonialcapitaltours.com) is excited to share these little known facts about Black History Month!

Carter G. Woodson, known as the “Father of Black History,” was the son of former enslaved Africans and received a Ph.D. in history from Harvard University. In 1926, Woodson began Black History Month.

February was chosen to observe Black history because it is also celebrates the birth days of abolitionist and writer Frederick Douglass and President Abraham Lincoln.

Woodson believed that the Black community should focus on the countless Black men and women around the world who had contributed to the advancement of human civilization.

Prior to his death in 1950, Woodson pressed schools to shift from studying Black history one week a year to studying Black history throughout the year.

Countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating Black history.
