Celebrating Black History Month
February is Black History Month, the annual observance of the history of the African diaspora. It has been observed in the month of February in the United States and Canada since 1976. It was begun as Negro History Week by historian Carter G. Woodson in 1926 with the goal of educating the American people about African American history. It concentrates on the cultural backgrounds and achievements of African Americans. To celebrate Black History Month, Discipleship Ministries staff have offered a piece of African American history, culture or biography related to church music or worship practice and history each week day during February. There's lots here to learn about and celebrate. Please also browse among the many resources already posted here.
