It is Black History month! Let's celebrate our history. History, particularly Black History, is extremely important for all to learn about in order to help prevent history from repeating itself. Black people have gone through so much. Let's recognize the struggles and come together to continue finding solutions! #PROGRESS

“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.” – Frederick Douglass
