Black History Month



February is Black History Month, a time to celebrate the pioneers, trailblazers, activists, artists, and everyday heroes of the Black Community. When President Gerald Ford first proclaimed the month of recognition, he noted that this was an opportunity for the public to "honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of Black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” From iconic figures in civil rights like Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Martin Luther King Jr., and Rosa Parks to pioneers in science, business, and politics. Let us spend this month learning from their stories, reflecting on our history, and celebrating the rich cultures that have helped shape our vibrant and diverse community.
