Today marks the beginning of the 45th Black History Month in American history. When Carter G. Woodson originally established what was then called Black History Week in 1926, the month of February was chosen because leaders Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass both shared birthdays in the month, two individuals who created historic change for African Americans.

We will offer a series of related posts, but first, we want to celebrate with the announcement of the recent
