KNIGHTS February is Black History Month.
Black History Month honors the contributions of African Americans to U.S. history. It was created in 1926 by Carter G. Woodson, a noted African American historian, scholar, educator, and publisher. It became a month-long celebration in 1976. The month of February was chosen to coincide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln.
Many of the things we use in everyday life were invented by African Americans. There are so many to choose from!
George Washington Carver created peanut butter.
Garret Morgan invented the stop light and the gas mask.
Lonnie G. Johnson invented the Super Soaker water gun.
Landmark is spotlighting HBCU (Historically Black College and University)
