      Black History Month is a remembrance of important people and events
      in the history of the African Diaspora. It is celebrated annually in
      the United States and Canada in the month of February, while in the
      UK it is held in the month of October.

      Black History Month was established in 1976 by African-Americans for
      the Study of African-American Life and History. The month-long
      celebration was an expansion of Negro History Week, which was
      established in 1926 by Carter G. Woodson, director of what was then
      known as the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History.

      At first it was celebrated almost exclusively by African Americans,
      taking place outside of the view of the wider society. Increasingly,
      however, mayors and governors, especially in the North, began
      endorsing Negro History Week and promoting interracial harmony. Now
      Black History Month is a national observance. Families are encouraged
      to take advantage of the effort to promote recognition of a rich
      heritage, culture and resilient people of African decent including African Americans, European Africans, Brazil, the Caribbean Islands and Jamaica to name a few.
