City of Worcester to Celebrate Black History Month With Series of Events

City of Worcester to celebrate Black History Month

The City of Worcester has announced a series of events to celebrate Black History Month.

About Black History Month, the City of Worcester writes:

“As we celebrate Black History Month, we reflect on the many sacrifices and great contributions African Americans have made to our country. Throughout our history, African Americans have courageously worn our Nation's uniform while defending peace and liberty around the globe.

African American patriots broke down racial barriers and inspired our Nation to make good on the promise of equal justice under the law. Educators transformed the academic world with the goal of ensuring that every child has access to a good education. And athletes and entertainers have brought pride and joy to generations of Americans.

Today, the accomplishments of African Americans in every aspect of our society continues to encourage people to reach as far as their vision and dreams may take them. Black History Month helps to reinforce America's highest ideals, our respect for diversity, community and freedom. By celebrating this month, we reaffirm our commitment to build a society where every person has the opportunity to achieve the promise of this great country.”
