Podcast Recommendations for Black History Month

Black History Month is celebrated in February in the U.S. The event grew out of the original “Negro History Week”, which was created in 1926 to coincide with the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. Black educators and the Black United Students at Kent State University proposed Black History Month in February 1969 and celebrated the first official event one year later. 

President Gerald Ford officially recognized Black History Month in 1976, calling upon the public to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” Since then, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month.
