Black History Month Is Here And We’re Honoring It In A Special Way
We're looking back, but more importantly, looking ahead.
February is here, and that means Black History Month is, too!
For forty years, America has observed Black History Month as a time to reflect on the revolutionary work black people have contributed to this country's history. What first began in 1926 as Negro History Week thanks to noted scholar Carter G. Woodson has evolved into a month-long celebration of black progress and power. But as time passes and the country’s racial climate changes, the ways in which we recognize and honor Black History Month have since evolved too -- and we at WTMH Radio are highlighting the significance of the annual tradition in our own special way.
