African American History Month: Crisis in Black Education
JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, Va. —
In 1926, Carter G. Woodson, a noted African American historian and author, selected February as the official month to honor the contributions African Americans made to American history, and made a week-long celebration known as, Negro History Week.
As a way to honor their contribution, Fort Eustis hosted a National African American History Month commemoration at Fort Eustis, Virginia, Feb. 28, 2017.
