BGS Celebrates Black History Month

Since 1976, February has been designated as Black History Month, which is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history.  Black History Month, also known as African American History Month, has evolved over the years from what was originally known as “Negro History Week”, which was created by historian Carter G. Woodson in Washington, DC in 1926. 

Black History Month is a time we dedicate annually to reflect and publicly acknowledge and thank those African Americans who have been integral in helping to shape American history.  As we reflect on those who faced challenges and overcame adversity, it is important to continue to make progress toward positive change and embrace diversity and inclusion in the workplace. 

Please join with us in acknowledging Black History Month and the notable African Americans who have made a profound impact.
