African-American History Month
Theme: African Americans in Times of War
African American History Month is celebrated each February since 1926 when Dr. Carter G. Woodson sought to commemorate the contributions of people of African descent in the United States. The 2018 theme commemorates the centennial of the end of the First World War in 1918, and explores the roles of African Americans in every American war, from the Revolutionary War Era to that of the present “War against Terrorism,” providing the framework for many stories related to African American soldiers and sailors, veterans, and civilians.
Join us throughout the month of February for celebratory and educational programs and events.
