Celebrating Black History Month

February 01, 2021

Black History Month became a federally recognized observance in February 1976, but did you know that its roots go all the way back to 1915 with Carter Godwin Woodson's attendance at a 50th anniversary celebration of Emancipation in Chicago? An alumnus of Berea College in Kentucky, Woodson is known as the Father of Black History.

Join the Human Relations Commission throughout the month of February as we post about exciting people, places, events, both local and regional, in Black History. Like Woodson's story above, we will post daily on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Follow us to follow along in the celebration!
