Black history month expanded from Negro History Week (February 1926) founded by historian Carter G. Woodson and his organization the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH) to a month in 1976, the nation’s bicentennial. That year, fifty years after the first celebration, the association held the first African American History Month (Excerpt from an essay by Daryl Michael Scott, Howard University, for the Association for the Study of African American Life and History). The Mary Lou Williams Center for Black Culture centralizes the efforts of student Black affinity organizations during the month of February for celebrating the history and culture of Black people in America. Throughout the month, discussions will be held addressing relevant issues of the day.
