Black History Month 2021

History-Makers of Today

History is All Around Us

Students (and adults...me too) don't always understand that history is being made all around us, in all kinds of ways. History, to them, is relegated to the past. In contrast, this newsletter is chock-full of Black Americans who are making history now.


Each Wednesday students representing the Diversity Club & Broadcast Media will be sending out a newsletter to highlight areas in Black History. Today we are focusing on the change-makers out there making history!


Happy Black History Month!
