First established in 1926 by historian Carter G. Woodson with the support of the Association for the Study for Negro Life, Negro History Week took place on the second week of February to coincide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln, two men whose actions greatly influenced the black population in America. It wasn’t until 1976 as part of the United States Bicentennial, that an expansion to Black History Month was formally recognized by the US government under President Gerald Ford.
