Did you know Black History Month was first celebrated back in 1926 but only during the 2nd week of February? They chose this time because it was close to the birthdays of President Abraham Lincoln and abolitionist Frederick Douglass. It was soon expanded to what we know today, celebrated all month. However, Black History doesn't have to be shared and explored only in February - you can do this whenever you'd like throughout the year. Never hesitate to educate yourself on the common things we use in our households and things that help us in our day-to-day lives. Let's talk about some inventions!
