The colors for Black History Month (also featured in the Pan-African flag) have been proudly flown since 1920, long before history books started to cover Black history. Now celebrated the entire month of February, Black History Month began as a single week’s observance in 1926. During the American bicentennial in 1976, President Gerald Ford officially recognized it as a way to honor the accomplishments of Black Americans throughout history.
Celebrate Black achievement in February with a Black history flag featuring the Pan-African colors, Dr. Martin Luther King, and other designs. Today, there’s a growing recognition that every day we make tomorrow’s history. Show your support for the future of Black American justice with a 3 ft. x 5 ft. Black Lives Matter flag.
