Black History Month Is Also Celebrated Outside of the US
The United States is not the only country to celebrate Black History Month. Canada also began to observe Black History Month in 1995. The celebration was officially recognized by a 2008 bill, which received unanimous approval. In Canada, Black History Month is observed in the month of February, the same as in the US. Another country that also celebrates Black History Month is the United Kingdom. In the UK, this month-long celebration takes place in the month of October.
