FEBRUARY 25, 2021
Dear Friends,

While the celebration of Black History Month is coming to a close at the end of February, I propose that we don’t let it end. What if we, as white people, along with people of color, as a united people of the community, acknowledge and celebrate the stories of black history all the time? What if the stories of black history are celebrated in equal capacity as the stories most of us learned throughout school from a white perspective? This is not a suggestion to rewrite history. Let me be clear. This is a suggestion to recognize the untold stories of black history as they deserve to be known. 

How? It’s easy. Let’s make a personal commitment to learn. Each one of us. The stories of black history are everywhere. We can start right here in Harrisburg and Central PA. The book One Hundred Voices was written by Calobe Jackson, Jr., Katie Wingert McArdle, David Pettegrew, Ph.D. with a foreword by Lenwood Sloan. One Hundred Voices tells the stories of Harrisburg’s Historic African American Community from 1850-1920. Learn more at this website. Digital copies of the book are available for download and print copies are available to purchase. I have some extra print copies at Leadership Harrisburg Area that I’m happy to share. Just let me know if you’d like to come pick one up. 
And with a week of sunshine ahead of us, why not venture over to the grounds of the PA State Capitol and see the stories come to life in the Commonwealth’s newest monument. The monument includes four life-sized bronze statues representing legendary Pennsylvania orators who visited or resided in Harrisburg in the late 1800s: William Howard Day, the educational reformer and civil rights pioneer; Frances Harper, poet, abolitionist, and suffragette; Jacob T. Compton, sergeant in Company D of the 24th United States Colored Infantry (USCT) and local musician; and T. Morris Chester, Civil War correspondent and recruiter. Learn more here.
The study of Black History shouldn’t be limited to one month a year and it shouldn’t be limited to black people only. Black history is part of our collective human history and deserves to be acknowledged. For further reading, check out these titles.
