The Black History Common Knowledge Challenge is available to high school and college students in the United States. This challenge tests the knowledge of Black cultural, education, and milestones of the African-American experience. Dr. Carter G. Woodson, a staunch advocate for the incorporation of Black History as an authentic and important component of American History teachings, originated "Black History Week" in 1926. In the 1960s, the concept developed into its current status -- "Black History Month."
