According to the Library of Congress, Black History Month began during “…the nation’s bicentennial. President Gerald R. Ford urged Americans to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” Since then, schools, businesses, and the government take this time every year to “recognize the importance of Black history in the drama of the American story.”1
