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.

You are where you are today because you stand on somebody’s shoulders. And wherever you are heading, you cannot get there by yourself. If you stand on the shoulders of others, you have a reciprocal responsibility to live your life so that others may stand on your shoulders. It’s the quid pro quo of life. We exist temporarily through what we take, but we live forever through what we give. –Vernon Jordan
