SSF Friends,

Each year in February we celebrate a very meaningful holiday.  I know your minds immediately went to Valentine’s Day, but that is not it.  I am talking about Black History Month, which celebrates African Americans, their extraordinary contributions, sacrifices and provides us with reflection on our slow progress towards African American rights and liberties during our nation’s history.

Black History Month was initially proposed in 1969 by black educators and the Black United Students at Kent State University, formal celebration first began a year later in 1970.  A mere 6 years later, backed by President Ford, Black History Month was celebrated across all state of the USA.  President Ford stated citizens should “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history”.  In celebration of Black History Month, I thought I would share some little-known facts about African Americans who made extraordinary contributions to the U.S.

If you would like to learn more about Black History Month, I invite you to check out these interesting links:

Have a wonderful and productive February and yes, Happy Valentine’s Day too!

Your Chair,
Sabrina L. Green
