Black History Month (BHM) African History Month (AHM)   is held every October in Britain, and February in USA and Canada.
The aims are to:

  • Promote knowledge of the  Black History , Cultural and Heritage
  • Disseminate information on positive Black contributions to British Society
  • Heighten the confidence and awareness of Black people to  their cultural heritage.

The origins of BHM go back to 1926 when Carter G Woodson, editor for thirty years of the Journal of Negro History, established African Caribbean celebrations in America.
