Black History Month, or National African American History Month, is an annual celebration of achievements by black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. history. The event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history.” (history.com, 2010)

As we embark on the changing political tides now is a good time to remind the world of our rich history. Black History Month provides us here at Timeless Occasions by Design an opportunity to not only educate. No only are we educating audience, but we are also educating ourselves. Each day we will highlight specific individuals or events that have had an impact on our nation. We encourage you all to take a few minutes out of your day to learn something new. Spend some time discussing what you have learned with your children so that they too can learn about our rich culture. Help us by spreading the word to other to take note of the great accomplishments by Black Americans.
