Black History Month: A Time to Remember

February 24, 2016

February is recognized in America as Black History Month—a time to honor and reflect on the achievements of African Americans. This month, we celebrate great people like Harriet Tubman, a brave woman who led slaves to freedom through the underground railroad, and others like Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks who helped fight for equality in America. There are so many African Americans who have made a difference in the United States. Today, Barack Obama leads the United States as the first African American President and Misty Copeland dances with the American Ballet Theatre as the first female African American principal ballerina.
