    "African American History Month’s early roots can be traced back to 1926, when historian Dr. Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History founded “Negro History Week.”  Woodson chose the second week of February specifically because it corresponded with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass (February 14) and Abraham Lincoln (February 12).  In 1976, President Gerald D. Ford made Black History Month official, and urged everyone to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of Black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout  our history."
