Every month is "Black History Month" here at BlackPast.org.  Nonetheless we recognize that hundreds of thousands of our visitors specifically seek out the website for information on African American history during the month of February.   We have gathered much of that data that may be helpful for teachers, students, and the general public who want to participate in the various celebrations or commemorations or who simply want to use that time to reflect on the history of black people.  Those resources appear below:
