Black History Month Winners

Its February so its time for the Black History Month writing contest! You can win up to $200! See your English teacher for details! Black History Month was created in 1926 by historian Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the study of Negro Life and History. They announced that the second week of February would be Negro History week. Since 1976 every US President has designated February as Black History Month. This year we have decided to focus on women contributors to History, Literature, Science, the Arts, Politics, Medicine and TV. Each day we will learn about their accomplishments and contributions to American society.
