Black History month was introduced by Carter Woodson, it was at the time referred to as Negro History Week 1926. It later became Black history month after Woodson's death. Anyway Negro history Weed was introduced because Carter Woodson saw that African-American history was missing from the textbooks, it was being forgotten. Woodson didn't want African-American history to be completely forgotten, so he introduced Negro history Week so that it can be remembered for it special achievements.
