The purpose of Black History Month USA is to expand America's commemoration in February by highlighting one African country every year for 365 days. Founded in 1994, this activity is being coordinated by US based South African Arts International, Ltd. (SAAI) with aim of increasing tourism, foreign direct investments, educational and cultural partnerships in African countries.
The origins of Black History Month date back to 1926, when a historian named Carter G. Woodson spearheaded Negro History Week. The first Negro History Week brought together historians and public school teachers, business leaders and educators, church leaders and lay people in a week-long celebration of the accomplishments of blacks in the United States.
