The month of February has been set aside to celebrate the contributions of the country's African Americans. It was in 1926 that Negro History Week was first organized by historian Dr. Carter G. Woodson (1875-1950) and others. During America's Bicentennial celebration in 1976, the one-week span was lengthened to four and February was established as Black History Month. The Canton Public Library has a vast amount of resources for and about African Americans.
