About Our Black History Month Quotes

Black History Month is a very significant period to commemorate the remarkable black individuals and events during the African diaspora. This annual celebration is celebrated every February in the United States and Canada, and October in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. Tracing back history, the Black History Month started in 1926, when Carter Woodson, together with the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, declared the second week of February to be the ‘Negro History Week’. Choosing such week also coincided with the birthdays of distinguished black figures such as Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. From then, the event became a yearly observation for the black community to relive and ensure that they are part of the broader society. And it’s true that no race is greater or more powerful than the other.
