The Milwaukee County Diversity Committee is always welcoming new members
FEBRUARY IS BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Black History Month began as “Negro History Week,” which was created in 1926 by Carter G. Woodson, a noted African American historian, scholar, educator, and publisher. It became a month-long celebration in 1976. The month of February was chosen to coincide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln.
