February is Black History Month
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter RSS

By Chief Ryan Malheiro
February 13, 2022

To commemorate and celebrate the contributions to our nation made by people of African descent, American historian Carter G. Woodson established Black History Week. First celebrated in 1926, the week was expanded into Black History Month in 1976 as part of the nation’s bicentennial. Each year, the U.S. President proclaims February as National African American History Month

Molly Williams (fl. 1818) was the first known black female firefighter in the United States. An African American, she was a slave of the New York City merchant Benjamin Aymar. She was affiliated with the Oceanus Engine Company #11 in lower Manhattan.
