  • Black History Month

    As we observe Black History Month throughout February, one name you may hear often mentioned is that of Dr. Carter G. Woodson. Dr. Woodson is considered to be the father of African American history, not only for his creation of an annual African American history observation, but also for his efforts to make the study of African American history in America a serious academic field.

    A census is an official count of all the residents in the United States. This information is used to determine the number of seats each state has in the House of Representatives and also determines how the federal funds are distributed throughout the United States.
