GCISD Celebrates Black History Month
Posted on 02/01/2021

During the month of February, GCISD joins the nation in celebrating Black History Month and honoring the contributions of African Americans in U.S. history. 

The concept of annually celebrating Black achievements started in 1926 as the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the entire month of February as Black History Month.

Although campus assemblies and gatherings will not be held because of current health and safety protocols, schools will still be celebrating the impact of African American cultures through various lessons, activities, morning announcements and projects.

Be sure to follow GCISD on Twitter and Facebook throughout the month as the District shares how Black History Month is being celebrated on its campuses.
