In February 1926, Carter G. Woodson launched the first “Negro History Week.” Its slow adoption was spurred on by Black social movements to combat the mistreatment, oppression, and disenfranchisement of Black Americans. Finally in 1976, Negro History Week became Black History Month. Today Black History Month is a staple part of American culture and a time of celebration in the Black community.
Each year, we honor the Black scientists, engineers, social activists, politicians, entrepreneurs, or innovators that have provided a great advancement to the community and in American society. We have more support than ever, with the tragic events in 2020 fueling more people to recognize and demand change for racial inequalities. It made this year’s celebration that much more special.
The February 2021 box is a special commemoration & celebration of Black business and ladies of our generation making their own stamp in the community with their very unique line of products!
