February 1 marks the beginning of Black History Month. What began as a week-long celebration recognizing the accomplishments and contributions of Black Americans in history, transformed into a month-long celebration, keeping Black history alive through education and celebration.
Black History Month is a time for us to honor the contributions and legacies of African Americans throughout U.S. history-from activists such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks, to leaders in politics, medicine, culture and more.
Please join us in celebrating this month, as we talk about the impact that the Black community has made in the arts, health and wellness, aviation, and civil rights. Shorewood High School will also be hosting their 8th Annual Black History Month Celebration on Wednesday, February 21 at 7 p.m. We believe representation matters and we look forward to recognizing and celebrating Black History Month.
