Black History Month

BHM at UMassFebruary is Black History Month. It was created to focus attention on the contributions of African Americans to the United States. It is an opportune time to acknowledge, spotlight and celebrate the achievements that African Americans have accomplished in this country. It honors all Black people from all periods of U.S. history, from the enslaved people first brought over from Africa in the early 17th century to African Americans living in the United States today.
