Donald Trump, has officially changed Black History Month to National African American History Month despite it having already been that way for decades.

Other Presidents including President Obama, President Carter and almost all Commanders-in-Chief have used the same language in proclamations.

There are some variations. President Reagan‘s proclamation in ’86 referred to it as “National Black (Afro-American) History Month.”

But who can tell Trump that he wasn’t the first?!
