*BLACK HISTORY MONTH IN SUN PRAIRIE*
Black History Month originates from the establishment of Black History Week led by Carter G. Woodson, Minister Jesse E. Moorland, and the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. After fifty years from the first celebration of Black History Week in 1926, it has evolved and expanded into Black History Month.
This time serves as a reminder to reflect and teach about the injustices inflicted upon Black and African
Americans lives while honoring the many contributions that have been made politically, economically, and culturally by members of the Black and African American community.
