Black History Month, also known as African-American History Month, is celebrated every February in the United States and Canada, and in October in the United Kingdom. In 1926, Historian Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History created the "Negro History Week" to be held the second week of February. In 1976, the federal government officially expanded the week to be known as Black History Month. See below for Black History gift items.
