WORLD WAR I World War I began in 1914, after the assassination of  Archduke Franz Ferdinand, and lasted until 1918.  During the conflict, Germany, Austria-Hungary,  Bulgaria and the Ottoman Empire (the Central Powers)  fought against Great Britain, France, Russia, Italy,  Romania, Japan and the United States (the Allied  Powers). Thanks to new military technologies and the  horrors of trench warfare, World War I saw  unprecedented levels of carnage and destruction. By  the time the war was over and the Allied Powers  claimed victory, more than 16 million people—soldiers  and civilians alike—were dead

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is widely considered the most influential leader of the American civil rights movement. He fought to overturn Jim Crow segregation laws and eliminate social and economic differences between blacks and whites.

What is the Purpose of Black History Month?

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of blacks in U.S. history. The event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history
