Santa Clara Celebrates Black History Month During February

Tuesday, Feb. 3, 2009

In 1926 Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson and other African American and white scholars launched "Negro History Week" so that Americans could reflect on the history and contributions of African Americans in the U.S. In the 1970s, the week-long observance was expanded to a month-long celebration of recognition that now includes global topics.
