Black History Month

"Freedom is not a state; it is an act. It is not some enchanted garden perched high on a distant plateau where we can finally sit down and rest. Freedom is the continuous action we all must take, and each generation must do its part to create an even more fair, more just society."
– John Lewis, Across That Bridge: A Vision for Change and the Future of America

February is celebrated nationally as Black History Month. During this month, we take the time to recognize, honor, and celebrate, all the Black Americans who have forever changed the history of our city, our country, and the world. We honor the resilience and courage they had to make our society more diverse, inclusive, and fair for all. This is a time to celebrate, remember, honor, and acknowledge the accomplishments and stories of the African-American heritage.
