CELEBRATE BLACK HISTORY MONTH
"February is Black History Month. Every year, we honor the achievements of African-Americans throughout history. This year is different. We have the first African-American president and, while it is important that we honor the contributions of historical figures such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks and Booker T. Washington, I would like to take some time in showcasing the heroes of today. These African-American leaders are the next generation’s historical figures."
