“Those who have no record of what their forebearers have accomplished lose the inspiration which comes from the teaching of biography & history”
Carter G. Woodson
December 19, 1875 – April 3, 1950
The words of Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson, distinguished Black author, editor, publisher, and historian still rings today. It is essential that we all understand that Black history began long before the transatlantic slave trade brought African ancestors to this land. Black Americans, descend from kings and queens and scholars and warriors. February is a time to remind everyone that we need to celebrate the accomplishments of Black Americans all year long and weave those stories permanently into the fabric of American history.
Martin Luther King, Jr.,
(January 15, 1929 - April 4, 1968)
Martin Luther King Jr's unparalleled contributions to racial justice have been revolutionary. Today MLK Day is a federal Holiday observed nationally where people fully participate in remembering and honoring everything King has accomplished. His values and historical place in American history are discussed and advocated, to educate communities and coming generations on the importance of equality and justice for all.
Each year on the third Monday of January we observe Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and reflect on the work that still needs to be done for racial equality. This January 18, make the holiday more than just a day off and take time to reflect and take action on civil rights issues across the globe.
In a normal year, a host of many special events and marches take place in honor of his legacy. Below is a list of links to virtual events and ways to be of service.
