Black History Month Resources (Superintendent’s Memo #024-19) Virginia Department of Education


As our nation observes Black History Month, the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) is pleased to provide teachers and school divisions with Black History Month resources celebrating and honoring African Americans and their achievements and contributions to America. In 1925, Carter G. Woodson and the organization he founded, the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH)), conceived and announced Negro History Week. Expanded to a month in 1976, ASNLH, now the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH)) continues to promote the study of Black history all year.
