Staying in Touch

Hello JCA Interages Volunteers,
In February we honor African American contributions to our society during Black History Month. There is a wealth of information and biographies provided by numerous organizations, including the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. In addition, the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH®) hosts a month-long virtual Black History Month festival. FOR FESTIVAL INFORMATION CLICK HERE

The story of Black History Month begins in 1915, half a century after the Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery in the United States. For a video presentation on the origin of and Black History Month click here.
