President Celebrates African American History Month
President George W. Bush speaks during a ceremony honoring African American History Month Tuesday, Feb. 8, 2005. "In the 1920s, Dr. Woodson argued that if African Americans were to take their rightful place in society, young Americans of all races needed to learn about the black contribution to our history and culture. So in 1926, he launched the first black history week. Today, a movement that began in black churches and schoolrooms is observed all across America -- including the White House. Welcome," said the President. White House photo by Paul Morse
