United Methodist Black History Quiz


Too often, the accomplishments of African Americans have not received adequate notice in U.S. history books and classrooms. That is why historian Carter Woodson first proposed a weeklong focus on black history in 1926. The first U.S. celebration of Black History Month happened decades later. 

We invite you to take a short quiz about African American history in the U.S. and in The United Methodist Church. We encourage you to share the link with others and compare your scores! After you take the quiz, review the complete answers and learn more.

Download, print and share this Black History Quiz with your church, family and friends!
