Black History Month Completed Cloze Worksheet
Black History Month is celebrated annually in the United States in the month of February. The second week in February. This celebration of black history in America was started by Dr. Carter G. Woodson, who wanted to bring national attention to the large contribution of African-Americans to the history of their country, in 1926. Woodson chose February as black history month because it was the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, and Langston Hughes. Some have speculated whether February's status as the shortest and coldest month of the year was a factor in Woodson's choice. History books had barely started covering black history when the tradition of Black History Month was started. At that point, most representation of blacks in history books was only in reference to the low social position they held.
