February marks the start of Black History Month and a time to reflect upon this federally recognized celebration of the contributions made by African Americans to our country and to the world. It is also a time to reflect on the continued struggle for social and racial justice. The responsibility for the eradication of racism lies with each of us.
As the Associate Alumnae of Douglass College continues to work towards an inclusive future, we honor the contributions of African Americans, Black communities and of our alumnae and friends. We honor Black history this month and all year.
The AADC is committed to supporting our Black alumnae as well as to creating platforms and sacred spaces to have the needed dialogue to educate, create awareness, expose barriers, implement change and lead through our actions and deeds.
We are better together as we move forward together.
