Black History Month
MSC Woodson Black Awareness Committee collaborates with the Black Student Alliance Council (BSAC) to market all Texas A&M University Black History Month events. In addition, we provide the signature BHM t-shirt for the Texas A&M community free of charge.
Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. Also known as African American History Month, the event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating Black history. (Credit: History Channel)
