HAPPY BLACK HISTORY MONTH!!!


It is officially Black History Month!


In honor of Black History Month, I have been doing a series on my photography Instagram highlighting people of color and overall black excellence!!! https://www.instagram.com/kelysian_photography/


FUN FACT: What we all know as “Black History Month” was not always a month, in fact, it was a week called “Negro History Week.”


This week was created by Historian Cater G. Woodson and the Association for Negro Life and History in 1926.


This week used to take place during the second week of February.


It wasn’t until the 1970s at Kent State University that a group of black educators and The Black United Students there started to celebrate black culture and contributions for the entire month of February.


Once this occurred, President Gerald Ford ended up recognizing “Black History Month” at the United States Bicentennial. He urged Americans to honor the accomplishments of black Americans all over and next thing you know….


BLACK HISTORY MONTH FLOURISHED!!!
