Woodson for Black History Month

Woodson for Black History Month

The celebration was expanded to a month in 1976, as President Gerald R. Ford urged Americans to "seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history", according to the site.

Promoting Woodson's important contributions to academia and American culture is central to Burnis R. Morris' work at Marshall.

Planning for Black History Month began during the latter half of the fall semester with finalizations beginning in January.

Virginia-based illustrator, in collaboration with the Black Googlers Network ― an employee group at the search giant ― created the image of Woodson's likeness featured in Thursday's doodle on Google's homepage.

The project-doers are looking to do more oral history interviews with African Americans who worked at the Hanford Site or lived in the Tri-Cities from 1943 to 1970.

The Framingham High library has a display to mark Black History Month. The month serves as high time to consider the history of the Black Panther Party, from its roots as a self-defense group, to the role J. Edgar Hoover and the Federal Bureau of Investigation played in killing Fred Hampton and disbanding the Party. "That would have been unheard of in Woodson's day".

Just Goods Marketplace kicked off the Rockford Urban Ministries Black History Month sale today.

"It's a very, very well put together program and it's put together by a collaborative effort of many folks and organizations", said Joan Cromwell of the Chelsea Black Community (CBC). If we can see further, it's because we stand on their shoulders.

The month of February is Black History month and the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion will be hosting several events in celebration of this month.
