According to (History. Com) President Gerald R. Ford stated “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” African Americans were given this month because they achieved so much in history and without this month most of the history of African Americans would be lost.
