Black History Month is celebrated during the month of February. At HMC, we celebrate by recognizing accomplishments of African Americans throughout history.Our past events include Question of the Day, Black History Jeopardy and A Walk Through History.
From The History Channel: "Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. history. The event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history."
