February is a month of love and romance, of seasonal changes, and a time of learning halfway through the traditional school year. But since 1926, February has also marked a celebration of African-Americans. In 1926, “Negro History Week” was chosen to coincide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. This became “Negro History Month”, and in 1976, the term was changed to “Black History Month”. Sometimes called “African-American History Month”, Black History Month celebrates people of African ancestry. This month is recognized in the United States and Canada in February, and in the UK in October. The following slides highlight 30 influential African-American figures from all sorts of backgrounds, including sports, politics, entertainment and more. Each slide contains a mini-biography, and a link to a short biographical video on YouTube.
