WBTV celebrates Black History Month

Black History Month is an celebration of achievements by black Americans.   Historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans first designated "Negro History Week back in 1926 as a time to celebrate the contributions of African Americans in U.S History.

In 1976, the United States and Canada decided to designate the month of February as a time for this annual event.

This Month, WBTV looks at African Americans from North and South Carolina who's work and efforts made a significant difference in our states and in our country.

Join the WBTV reporters and anchors as we take you on a journey throughout the month through the eyes of these black pioneers from the Carolinas.
