Black History Month Kids’ Day

Black History Month was originated in the U.S. in 1970 by students and educators at Kent State University, with the precursor being Negro History Week, started by historian Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History in the second week of February to coincide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. This year’s BHM theme is African Americans and the Arts, so the Carver is highlighting Black poets, musicians, visual artists, and more with storytelling, crafts, and lots of other fun and educational activities to bring history to life. – Kat McNevins
