Every February we celebrate and honor the achievements of the Black community and pay tribute to the generations that have dealt with adversity in their continuous effort to achieve equality and equity.

In 1986, Congress passed a law designating February as Black History Month, indicating that February 1 of that year would “mark the beginning of the sixtieth annual public and private salute to Black History.” This was in reference to the efforts initiated by Carter G. Woodson in February of 1926 in Washington D.C.

The ACVP commemorates the many contributions and accomplishments of the Black community and celebrate those within our professional organizations. Moreover, we want to continue beyond the month of February to recognize and reflect on the racism and injustices experienced by members of the Black community and renew our determination to foster an equitable environment. We must continuously aim toward achieving equity for everyone, with resolve, every day.

We encourage you to learn more by visiting the following resources that highlight Black History Month, including historical perspectives and background on the official Black History Month Colors used in the graphic for this piece.

Latinx and Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated September 15 through October 15. What is now a 30-day celebration started as a weeklong celebration in 1968. On August 17, 1988, the week was expanded to 30 days by President Ronald Reagan. This month celebrates the history, culture, and contributions of people whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. This particular four-week period was chosen because it encompasses the national anniversaries of independence across much of Latin America including Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Mexico.

For those who may not know, Latinx people have a long history in our country dating back to the first-known colony founded by the Spanish at Saint Augustine, Florida in September 1565. More recently, Hispanics and Latinx have become the fastest growing group in the United States, with their ranks growing 23 percent in the past decade, according to the 2020 Census. Today, nearly one in five people in the U.S. population identifies as Hispanic or Latinx.

What is the difference between Latinx and Hispanic? In basic terms, Latinx describes the people and culture of Latin American descent. Hispanic describes the people and culture of Spanish-speaking countries.
