How/Why is Black History Month important to celebrate throughout our district?
Black History is very much a part of US History. It's important to celebrate it not only throughout the district, but also throughout the world. It's an opportunity to learn about African-American culture and leaders that made significant contributions to the world we live in today.
Who is a famous female leader of African Ancestry that inspires you and why?
Sojourner Truth is a famous female leader of African Ancestry that inspires me. I admire her bravery and courage to be an outspoken advocate for abolition and civil rights in an era filled with many racial inequalities.
