We are now at the close of Black History Month 2021! This year, the Say it Loud! Employee Affinity Group is hosting a Black History Basic Training (inspired by GirlTrek campaigns from the past year), where we highlight individuals, organizations and events that made significant contributions to the African American experience. This week, we celebrated Soul City, NC, the Black Women’s Club Movement, Tuskegee University, inventor Sarah Goode, and Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm.
We hope you learned something and continue to celebrate the history of Black people the entire year.
