FRANKLYWNOW - Black History Month Kicks Off

Black History Month Kicks Off

Published:
Sunday marks day one of Black History month.
The month of February was chosen by historian and educator Doctor Carter G. Woodson back in 1926.

Woodson originally pushed for a "Negro History Week" -- the second week of the month of February -- chosen after the birth dates of two people whom Woodson felt had significantly affected the lives of African Americans: Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass.

The week evolved into Black History Month in 1976.
Monday from 8 a.m. to 8 a.m. in the East/West Dining Room at Lourdes an associate from the O.R. will share a special display to commemorate Black History month.
