Black History Month (BHM) celebrates the heritage and culture of African Americans and their contributions to U.S. society. The Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) has chosen “Civil Rights in America” as the 2014 BHM theme to honor the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the struggles in the movement for equality that have fundamentally reshaped the U.S. as a nation.
