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. Mixed Nation will share some interesting and inspiring African American content throughout the month! 

Please share ideas for content we should feature this month by emailing them to us at info@mixednation.com #MixedNation #BHM #BlackHistoryMonth
