Carter Goodwin Woodson was the father of Black History Month.

In 1915, historian Carter G. Woodson proposed a “Negro History Week” to honor the history and contributions of African Americans. Nine years later, his dream became reality. Woodson chose the second week of February to pay tribute to the birthdays of two Americans that dramatically affected the lives of Blacks: Abraham Lincoln (February 12) and Frederick Douglass (February 14). The week-long observance officially became Black History Month in 1976.
