Remembering the important people and events in the history of the African diaspora, Black History Month (or African-American History Month) is celebrated each February. Black History Month was first proposed by Black educators and the Black United Students at Kent State University in 1969. A year later, Kent State students held the first Black History Month celebration. The celebration not only brings attention to the struggle for freedom and equal opportunity, but also is a time to celebrate the many achievements of African-Americans in all fields. Here are a few Black History Month podcasts that spotlight these contributions.
