Black History Month
Remembering the Past, Celebrating the Future
February 2024

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. 
Also known as African American History Month, the event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans.
Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. 
Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating Black history.

This year’s theme is rhythms of resilience, one soul, one sound. It centers on the concept of black history, culture, and music which embody a tapestry of diversity in interconnection, rather than being a single narrative.

The Chelsea City Hall exhibit highlights the resilience of key African 
Americans who have made a difference in the fields of politics, civil rights, sports, education, and literature.
