Black History Month Flag Raising

Today we raised our commemorative flag recognizing Black History Month at City Hall. Black History Month is celebrated annually every February and recognizes the history and achievements of African Americans. It also pays tribute to the generations of African Americans who struggled with adversity throughout American history. Black History Month encourages us to continue to promote the study of Black history throughout the year. 

In 1925, Carter G. Woodson’s organization, The Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, conceived and announced Negro History Week. Over the years, Negro History Week became a central part of African American life, and across the country, more Americans came to appreciate the celebration. President Gerald R. Ford officially recognized African American History Month in 1976.
