Black History Month US
Black history month is celebrated each year in February in the United States and Canada, and October in the UK and Ireland. It is a way of remembering important people, events and achievements of African Americans. It honours all Black people from all periods of US history, from the enslaved people first brought over from Africa in the early 17th century, to those African Americans living in the United States today.
As well as some general resources we have included a number of important and inspirational people to help celebrate Black History Month. We will hopefully be adding to these in the next few months:
