Black History Month is an annual recognition of the history, achievements, and influence of the Black community.

This month, we’d like to celebrate Black History Month. It serves as a chance to highlight black historical icons and events. February has historically been a time to celebrate black history because Fredrick Douglas and Abraham Lincoln’s birthdays are in February (14th and 12th respectively).

In 1975, President Ford officially deemed February Black History Month after Kent State students and staff had advocated for the cause six years earlier.

Kent State University students’ activism lead the way for Black History Month.

    Nice article Maurice! I want to give a BIG SHOUT OUT to Goody Gourmets! There is no better cheese popcorn ANYWHERE! :) This is the cheesiest, most flavorful, and fresh popcorn around. I highly recommend this Black entrepreneur’s delicious popcorn. You won’t be disappointed!
