Call for Participation in Black History Month
Assistant Dean of Students Michael Andrews invites members of the CUA community to participate in planning for Black History Month.
Black History Month is an annual observance in February, celebrating the past and present achievements of African-Americans. In February 1926, Dr. Carter G. Woodson, founder of the Association for the Study of African-American Life and History, proposed the establishment of "Negro History Week" to honor the history and contributions of blacks to American life. Dr. Woodson, known as the "Father of Black History," chose the second week of February because it commemorates the birthdays of two men who greatly affected the African-American community: Abraham Lincoln (Feb. 12) and Frederick Douglass (Feb. 14). Negro History Week became Black History Week in the early 1970's. In 1976, the week-long observance was expanded to a month in honor of the nation's bicentennial.
In 2006, CUA will observe Black History Month in conjunction with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday (Jan. 16) by focusing on the accomplishments and contributions of African-Americans to American society. We encourage all constituents of the university community to participate in and contribute to the celebration of Black History Month in events both on and off campus.
The Office of the Dean of Students will coordinate a calendar of campus and local events in association with Black History Month. If you are interested in planning an event, assisting on the planning committee or would like your event to be placed on the Black History Month calendar, please view and complete the Black History Month Participation Form, found on the dean of students Web site, or contact Michael Andrews at 202-319-5619 or email@example.com.
