Black History Month, or National African American History Month, is an annual celebration of African American achievements. During this month, we celebrate every achievement — big and small. We also pay tribute to the generations of African Americans who struggled to achieve full citizenship in the United States.
Below are resources to better understand and celebrate Black history.
