Re-Writing Our Health History

We all know that Black History Month was founded in 1926 by Carter G. Woodson and was originally set aside as “Negro History Week”. Dr. Woodson chose the second week of February to study “Negro life” because it marks the birthdays of two men who had tremendous influence on Black America: Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. Since that time, Black History month has been expanded and celebrated all over the country and even in some communities outside of America.
