Begun in 1926 by historian Carter G. Woodson, Black History Month is the celebration in February that highlights the achievements of the descendants of the African diaspora. Films chronicling the African-American experience are screened at the Eastern Parkway Library, the Tuskegee Airmen of World War II are honored at the Queens Library, and Obama: The Historic Campaign and Victory in Photos examines the road to the White House for President Barack Obama . These are just a few of the events related to Black History Month across the five boroughs in February.
