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.

We black folk, our history and our present being, are a mirror

 of all the manifold experiences of America. What we want, what

 we represent, what we endure is what America is. If we black

folk perish, America will perish.  –Richard Wright
