A Month of Celebration

Black History Month has come to a close, but there are students who honor their culture year around.

Black History Month began back in 1915 by Carter G. Woodson. He wanted a week to celebrate and promote achievements by black Americans and this celebration grew to an entire month, according to history.com.

Students today try to celebrate this historic time at school, but being in a predominately white town, they find it hard to commemorate this month to its full potential. However, many students find ways to honor their culture regardless.
