Category: Black History Month
Too often the contributions of women married to great men pale in the shadows of their spouse’s accomplishments. Every year we celebrate the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the third Monday of January marking the imprint his commitment to nonviolent activism has made on our lives and the world. However, Dr. King’s legacy would not be what it is today without the work of Coretta Scott King.
Black History Month celebrates the impact Black heritage has had on our country. As we take a look back at history, it’s also important to determine how we’re going to change for the future. And part of the change includes learning about the impacts Black, Indigenous and Immigrant cultures have had, and continue to have, on society.
