This Day in Black History: February 6, 1961


This Day in Black History: February 6, 1961 In celebration of Black History Month, we here at DallasBlack.com would like to make sure that we do our part in recognizing the excellent achievements of African-Americans throughout history. Every day in the month of February, we'll be posting important milestones/achievements made by our people!



Black History Month, or National African American History Month, is an annual celebration of achievements by black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. history. The event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history.
