The origins of Black History Month lay in early 20th century historian Carter G. Woodson’s desire to spotlight the accomplishments of African Americans. Mainstream historian left out African Americans from the narrative of American history up until the 1960s and Woodson worked his entire career to correct this blinding oversight. His creation along with the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History announced the second week in February to be “Negro History Week”. Why, this week was chosen because it coincided with the birthday of Abraham Lincoln on February 12 and of Frederick Douglass on February 14, both of which dates black communities had celebrated together since the late 19th century. Black History month was first proposed by black educators and the Black United Students at Kent State University in February 1969. Six years later, Black History Month was celebrated when President Gerald Ford recognized Black History Month, during the celebration of the United States Bicentennial. He urged Americans to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.”

After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God. " This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel."
Mk 1: 14 - 15
