“Those who have no record of what their forebears have accomplished lose the inspiration which comes from the teaching of biography and history,” ~Carter G. Woodson
Black History is American History. Please join me in this celebration and as always thank you for taking this DEI walk with me. United together, we are stronger. Stay safe and healthy.
