2020 Black History Month

The Next 400 Years

Recognition * Restoration * Resilience

This month, we will use this platform to hear and reflect on the words and wisdom of historical and current inspirational African American and Black individuals.

May we all be inspired and encouraged to learn from one another and to treat each other with dignity and respect.

I am not fighting just for myself and my people in the South when I fight for freedom and equality.  I realize now that I fight for the moral and political health of America as a whole and for her position in the world at large.      –Marian Wright Edelman
