Fox News Celebrates Black History Month For Five Seconds

February is Black History Month, which is a lot of territory to cover in just 28 days. Begun in 1926 as Negro History Week, Black History Month was first recognized by the U.S. government in 1976, and its purpose has always been to correct the under-representation of black Americans in mainstream historical narratives. Fox News is doing their part by airing a series of videos honoring important black figures in American history. Here are three of them:

 The 5-second spots honor "Frederick Douglass, Leader anti-slavery movement," "Condoleezza Rice, Former Secretary of State," and "Ray Charles, Winner of 17 Grammys."
