February is African American History Month

Join the Fort Worth ISD in celebrating African American History Month.

The annual observance, officially known as African American History Month or Black History Month, was originally established in 1926 by author and historian, Dr. Carter G. Woodson.

For 50 years, the acknowledgment of Black history was a weeklong observance. In 1976, the United States bicentennial, the week was expanded to a month-long celebration.
