Since Black History month was first observed in 1976, several congressional laws and presidential proclamations have changed its recognition as of 2015. President Gerald Ford issued the first presidential proclamation in 1976, urging all Americans to recognize the contributions of African Americans to the nation and its culture. In 1986, Congress passed Public Law 99-244, which recognized February as National Black History Month, and urged both public and private celebrations during the period.
