A Quiz for Black History Month

In 1926, the historian Carter G. Woodson came up with the idea of a “Negro History Week” to celebrate and educate people about the achievements and cultural significance of the African diaspora in American and world culture. Fifty years later, it became an official event in the national calendar in the United States and Canada, and even though its usefulness as a stand-alone month has been questioned, that doesn't diminish by one iota the accomplishments of the people profiled in this month’s quiz. Enjoy.
