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.

A lesser people— I mean a people of weaker constitution and fortitude— would have given up on this country long ago. But we didn’t. We are going to force this country to live up to what it is supposed to be about or we’ll die in the attempt.   –Barbara Jordan
