Celebrating Black History began in 1926, when Dr. Carter G. Woodson, a Harvard Ph.D., initiated "Negro History Week." Dr. Woodson, a historian, chose the second week in February because it included the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. In 1976, the Bicentennial (200th birthday) of the U.S.A., the week-long observance was extended to the entire month of February in order to have enough time for celebratory programs and activities.
Juneteenth Day (also called Freedom Day or Emancipation Day) is celebrated on June 19 each year. It recognizes the anniversary of the emancipation of last remaining slaves in Texas on June 19, 1865; the Civil War had ended two months previously, and General Gordon Granger rode to Galveston, Texas, with 2,000 Union troops to enforce the freeing of the slaves. Juneteenth became an official holiday in Texas on Jan. 1, 1980. This uplifting celebration of freedom is gaining in popularity around the USA.
