Celebrate Black History Month with CMSS

Black History Month began in 1926 as "Negro History Week," the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans.

Today, Black History Month provides all Americans the opportunity to celebrate the rich culture, heritage and achievements of black people. When we study and recognize Black History, we study ourselves and our national history!

Black History is American History.
