- Feb. 2, 2013 - FALLS CHURCH, Va. --
Black History Week began in 1926 in the United States, when Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History held "Negro History Week", the second week in February. This week was selected because it marked the birthday of both Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. In 1976, the federal government acknowledged the extension of Black History Week to Black History Month, held each year in February.
This year, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Chi Beta Omega chapter celebrates Black History Month by honoring Sorors of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. who’s achievements have made an effect on our history today.
