Black History Month

February  is recognized across America and here in the Robbinsdale Area School district as Black History Month.

Also known as African-American History Month in America, Black History Month is an annual observance in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom for remembrance of important people and events in the history of the African diaspora.

In 1926, historian Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, announced the second week of February to be "Negro History Week." This week was chosen because it coincided with the birthday of Abraham Lincoln on February 12 and of Frederick Douglass on February 14, both dates Black communities have celebrated since the 19th century.

In 1976, Negro History Week was officially recognized by the U.S. government and expanded to Black History Month .

 

Sojourner Truth

Sojourner Truth was an African American evangelist, abolitionist, women’s rights activist and author who lived a miserable life as a slave, serving several masters throughout New York before escaping to freedom in 1826. After gaining her freedom, Truth became a Christian and, at what she believed was God’s urging, preached about abolitionism and equal rights for all, highlighted in her stirring “Ain’t I a Woman?” speech, delivered at a women’s convention in Ohio in 1851. She continued her crusade for the rest of her life, earning an audience with President Abraham Lincoln and becoming one of the world’s best-known human rights crusaders.
